The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger started his transfer negotiations early this season in order to avoid incidents like the ones which happened at the end of last season, and according to today’s Mirror Football they managed to sign Podolski after a season long wait.
Wenger spoke about Podolski’s skills very early in the season, and the German starlet also stated his interest in joining the Emirates Stadium side very early in the season, and now the move is rumoured to be complete for an incredibly low transfer fee of £10.9million if we think about the skills the striker holds.
Podolski is due to be announced a Gunner at the end of the week, but according to today’s papers the deal has already been agreed with both Koln and the player.
The Gunners are highly likely not to stop here as Wenger is still intensely watching Montpellier’s striker Giroud and another transfer is on the cards given the fact that Morocco striker Chamakh is likely to leave and Arsene Wenger needs a central forward to handle things in the penalty area.
Podolski joins Arsenal after the Gunner fans hoped for this transfer to occur for a whole season now. If Wenger will also transfer a top attacking midfielder, he’ll not only finally satisfy the fans need for top players, but also have a big chance at winning the title next season.
