Podolski undergoes Arsenal medical?

Published Add your comment

Arsenal target Lukas Podolski is believed to have undergone a medical with the club yesterday, according to a report in the Daily Star.

The 26-year-old German international striker, who currently plies his trade in the Bundesliga with Cologne, is set to move to north London this summer in a £10.9million.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is looking to reinforce his squad, in a bid to convince club captain Robin van Persie to sign a new deal at the Emirates Stadium.

In addition to Podolski, Arsenal are ready to smash their record transfer fee – £15 million paid for Andrey Arshavin – to sign £30 million-rated Borussia Dortmund starlet Mario Goetze, and could make even further additions in what promises to be a busy transfer window for the club.


"If we find the right person for the right position we are happy to buy," said Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood. "We have got enough to pay anything but silly prices."

Club officials travelled to Germany earlier this week following talks with Cologne and Podolski's representatives, in the hope to tie up an early deal and avoid last summer's transfer debacle.
