New Arsenal signing Lukas Podolski does not believe he has to prove anything to his new manager Arsene Wenger at Euro 2012.

Podolski is in Poland and Ukraine representing Germany and his hopeful he can prove to Gunners fans that he will be bringing high quality performances to Emirates Stadium next season.

Wenger is a pundit for French television at the tournament and Podolski insisted he did not feel under pressure to show his worth to Wenger in his performances and was confident the Arsenal boss had seen enough of him already to be sure.

“I don't think I have anything to prove to Arsene Wenger. He has seen me play several times and knows what I can do,” he told

“I think it is clear that my transfer was no accident and, of course, I'm very glad I signed with Arsenal.”

The 27-year-old’s move to the Gunners from his boyhood club FC Koln was confirmed in April for an undisclosed fee and was seen a positive change in the club’s transfer policy after the turmoil of losing Smair Nasri and Cesc Fabregas last year.

Podolski was in confident mood and claimed he was happy to be able to excite Arsenal fans with a taste of what he intends to being next season.

“What has really pleased me is that Arsenal fans can watch me play in a tournament like this and realise what I'm capable of at the highest level,” he added.

“Very soon I will also show that in London.”
