Cologne have finally given the green light to allow Lukas Podolski to sign for Arsenal this summer, it has been claimed.
The 26-year-old German striker has been frequently linked with a move to north London, following his most potent individual season in the Bundesliga.
Podolski will reportedly sign a £100,000-per-week contract with Arsenal, but neither club has confirmed that an agreement has been reached between the two respective parties.
The acquisition of goalscoring reinforcements this summer is a priority for Arsenal, and the signing of Podolski will go some way to relieving the burden on Robin van Persie.
