Arsenal are reportedly one of the leading candidates to sign FC Koln striker Lukas Podolski in January.

The Germany international has netted 10 goals in 13 appearances this season and, as ever, has been frequently linked with a move to a more high profile club.

Arsenal, in recent weeks, having been touted as potential suitors as Arsene Wenger scours the market for goalscoring reinforcements.

And now, according to Metro, Arsenal are 'serious contenders' along with Lazio to secure a deal for Podolski.
