Werder Bremen striker Claudio Pizarro says there is "no rush'' for him to make up his mind about his future as he enters the final six months of his contract with the Bundesliga club.

The Peruvian forward said before the winter break that he is leaving his options open and he has since been linked with a move to a host of Italian clubs.

He is therefore taking his time and waiting to see what the best offer will be, without ruling out that he will extend his stay in Bremen.

"Sooner or later, an offer will come and I will take my time to consider it,'' he is quoted as saying by Kicker magazine. "At the moment, there is no rush. I will make up my mind in March or even April.''

The 33-year-old has scored 12 goals this season and recently became the Bundesliga's all-time top foreign goalscorer. He has scored more goals for Bremen than for any other club in his career netting 83 times in 145 games - compared to the 71 he scored for Bayern Munich in 174 appearances.
