Arsenal striker target Lukas Podolski admits he's had plenty of offers come his way.

The German internatioal is being heavily linked with a move away from Cologne, with teams from across Europe thought to be keen on the player.

Gunners chief Arsene Wenger is credited with a long-standing interest in the 26-year-old, although Podolski is far from certain over where his future could lie come January.

"I will talk to Cologne before anybody else and see what they have to say," he told German TV station ZDF.

"Of course I am getting plenty of offers and I expect more of them to arrive to me, to my agent or to my club in the coming weeks."

Despite an emphatic 4-0 win yesterday, critics have suggested Arsenal lack strength-in-depth in their frontline this season.

A run of fine form has seen Robin Van Persie fire Arsenal into fifth in the Barclays Premier League, but the Dutchman has a poor track-record with injury and his fitness will be a major concern to Wenger.

Park Chu-Young and Marouane Chamakh have both failed to impress when their opportunities have arrived at the Emirates Stadium, and whilst the boss has far from played his hand over January's transfer stratergy, Podolski could be the perfect addition to push Arsenal into the Champions League places.
