Germany legend says Arsenal are taking a risk on Podolski

Former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamman declared that Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger is gunning for the wrong striker and that Podolski’s fee is outrageous for a striker who only proved he has any skill at all when he was playing for small clubs.

According to the former Germany international, Podolski can only prove his skills when he’s the most important player in a team and that the striker proved that during his time at Bayern Munich. Hamman seems to think that it’s outrageous for Wenger to pay that much for this kind of player.
