Podolski: We'll challenge for title

Published Add your comment

Lukas Podolski insists Arsenal can mount a sustained assault on the Barclays Premier League title - but whether captain Robin van Persie will lead the challenge remains to be seen.

While Old Trafford appears to be the preferred destination of the Dutchman, Manchester United will have to move closer towards the £20million at which Arsenal appear willing to do business. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has added experience in the form of German striker Podolski, France forward Olivier Giroud and Spain midfielder Santi Cazorla.

Podolski, 27, maintains this shows Arsenal can be thinking about an attack on the championship and not just securing third or fourth place again, and he said: "The Premier League has five or six teams who can play for the title - and we are one of them. We really want to win this trophy."
