There have been numerous Arsenal rumours linking the German international Lukas Podolski with a move away from the Emirates in January, especially as the 29 year-old has made it clear that he wants to play regular first team football.
Inter Milan have been mooted as a possible destination for Podolski, and now their manager Roberto Mancini has confirmed that the Italian club is considering bringing the German to Serie A. He said: “Podolski is a good player,”
“He is part of a list of players that we are following, so we will see what will come of it.”
The German legend Luther Matthaus thinks that Inter and Podolski would be a good match, because they are both mediocre! “As long as it’s only rumors, we must be cautious. I think that Inter are following more players and that anyone, at this time, could pursue Podolski,” Matthaus said.
“From one point of view, Podolski and Inter would certainly fit because both have big names and have had considerable success in the past. It could be positive to resume the pursuit of these successes together.
“But it hurts me to see where Inter is now. They have become a mediocre club, so Podolski would join a mediocre club, although Inter has more economic advantages than other clubs in Italy.”
Perhaps they WILL be a good fit together, as it certainly doesn’t look like Podolski will get much playing time while Wenger is still in charge at Arsenal.
