Podolski keeping quiet over Arsenal move

Arsenal transfer target Lukas Podolski would not be drawn on the possibility of a summer switch to Emirates Stadium.


The Guardian claims Arsene Wenger is reportedly interested in bringing the Germany international to the Gunners, but the player refused to comment when questioned about the rumours.


Podolski will have just one year left on his Cologne contract in the summer and he has so far refused to sign a new one, although the Bundesliga side have not thrown the towel in just yet and will continue to try and convince him to sign an extension.


“I will give all I've got to the very end. We have 10 more very tough matches,” he said after scoring a late equaliser in his side’s 1-1 draw with Hoffenheim last weekend.


“Every game is a final for us. On Saturday we have an important game against Hertha [Berlin] and we need to win that game at all costs.”


There is no doubting Podolski’s commitment to the cause as Cologne is his boyhood club and his move back there from Bayern Munich was funded by two wealthy fans.


However, they were ominous words and they come after a January of continual links between Arsenal and the 26-year-old.


Wenger may be looking for top quality replacements for current top scorer and captain Robin van Persie, who has been scoring most of the Gunners goals this season.


If ‘Poldi’ were to join the north London side, he would line up next to international team-mate Per Mertesacker.
