It has been reported that Arsenal winger Lukas Podolski in interested in moving away from the London club, after the chances of him getting first team football are looking even slimmer after the signing of Alexis Sanchez, returning Joel Campbell and Theo Walcott.

Podolski joined Arsenal from 1. FC Köln in 2012 for an undisclosed fee. In his first season with the Gunners he scored 11 league goals in 33 games, proving to be key in Arsenals challenge for the Champions League place. The next season followed a similar pattern with the German bagging 8 league goals in 20 premier league games.

Pecking Order

However his luck seemed to turn after the signing of Santi Cazorla and Mesut Özil as he found himself on the bench more and more. He would have many suitors, especially in Germany and he may want to return to his home country. He has played for two German clubs in his career, and due to being nearly 30 now, may retire in Germany.

I would say a move for Podolski is likely, and would be in his best interests for extending his career into his mid-30s. Arsenal do not need him and would be no worse without him due to the plethora of options they have in the wide midfield positions.
