win their four remaining matches to be assured of survival in the French Ligue 1.
Auxerre hit Stade Brestois 4-0 at the weekend to boost their slim hopes of avoiding the drop.
Oliech did not feature in the weekend match as he was serving a suspension but he is expected back when the team plays Dijon away on Wednesday.
Speaking regarding his future, Oliech said he several options lined-up should the club go down to Ligue 2.
"We hope to maintain our position in the top league but it will not be possible for me to remain here if we get relegated because the club must sell its big players and attempt to make a comeback next season," he said.
He added: "Currently there are several options including some Ligue 1 sides that we are considering though for the moment I want to add onto my goalâs tally that should make it easier for me to get a big club."
Oliech has not given up on playing in England despite the countryâs low ranking in Fifa which may not allow him to join the prestigious English Premier League (EPL).
"There is always a possibility that I may get a club in England despite our current ranking in Fifa. It will all depend on how I perform in France by the end of the season," he said.
Monaco who feature in the France Ligue Two remain another option for the top striker.
