Arsenal’s chase for German striker Lukas Podolski might not be on the road to success after all judging from the last statement the Koln hitman made yesterday.
According to the Italian press, the striker declared that he wouldn’t mid joining his conational striker Miroslav Klose in Roma playing for Lazio. Klose has joined the Italians in the summer and he seems to have settled in very well. The two strikers were also teammates at Bayern Munich when Podolski was playing for the Bavarian side.
“It would be great to play alongside him again. Miro has spoken well of Lazio and he’s happy in Rome,” Podolski said.
“But my future has yet to be decided.”
Wenger spoke very highly about the German international and admitted that talks are being made for his transfer, but according to the Frenchman’s last statement regarding Podolski from a couple of weeks ago, the talks are still nowhere close to an end and it will still be a few weeks before any decision will be taken.
Wenger’s trying to avoid incidents like the one from last summer when the Gunners left the outgoings of Nasri and Fabregas uncovered because of the late nature of the transfers. Do you think Podolski will finally join?
