It has been reported that Arsenal have stepped up their interest in German and Cologne striker Lukas Podolski with scouts being sent to watch the front-mans recent match against Borussia Monchengladbach.
With Chamakh looking to be on the way out this coming January and only Park to replace Van Persie if he succumbs to injury, Arsenal will be noticeably stretched thin up front.
With a pressing need to find healthy competition for the Dutchman, as well as top quality cover, Podolski is a player that would fit the mould very well.
It is claimed a bid of approximately £20m would tempt Cologne to sell their star striker. Do you guys think it is a fair price? Would you like to see the German play for the gunners? Feel free to leave a comment below!
