Lukas Podolski insists that he is ready to fight to get back in the Arsenal team after a frustrating loan spell at Inter Milan, reports the Daily Mail. 

The German international is set to re-join his Arsenal team-mates in the summer having joined Inter Milan on a loan-deal in January. 

Podolski was shipped out by manager Arsene Wenger, who would have hoped that the forward would have the chance to galvanise his career in Italy after scoring only three goals for the Gunners before January.

Struggles at Inter Milan

But things seemed to have picked up where they left off for the former Bayern Munich man, with Podolski failing to score in any of his 12 appearances for Roberto Mancini's side. 

But, despite his poor return, Podolski is adamant that he will break into the Arsenal side when he returns. 

"When I go back (to Arsenal) I think I have the chance to play there,’ he told Sportsmail.

"I have one year left so we'll will see what happens. I feel very well at the club and with my teammates as well. I had a great two and a half years; I scored a lot of goals there and had a lot of assists."

Podolski has struggled for goals at Inter Milan too, with Mauro Icardi often being used as the out-and-out striker. This has left Podolski stuck out on the left, just as he was at Arsenal. 


It was a similar story at the Emirates, with the likes of Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck being preferred as strikers by Arsene Wenger. 

Despite his recent struggles, Podolski feels that a change of club has served him well, and that he will be ready to return to Arsenal at the end of the season. 

"The first six months of the season were not easy, that’s why I changed clubs. But now I’m ready," he added. 

Arsenal fans, will Podolski make a difference when he returns to the Premier League? Share your thoughts below....
