Schalke Threaten To Hijack Arsenal’s Deal For Podolski

Even though Arsenal’s move for Koln’s Lukas Podolski was proving to be a sure summer hit, Arsene Wenger might still encounter big problems now that Bundesliga giants Schalke 04 are also highly interested in snatching the German international.

Podolski declared earlier this year in numerous occasions that he’s unsatisfied with the current situation at the German club and that he’s interested in leaving in the summer. The striker also slipped two tips for Wenger to pick up, saying that he wants to move to a Champions League playing side and that if he is to transfer abroad he’d like to go to Arsenal.
