The German international has been in great form this season netting 14 goals in 15 appearances in the Bundesliga, but seems keen to prove doubters wrong who say he can only play well at his home club.
Podolski said on the situation to Sport Bild:
Moving to another club within the Bundesliga is something I can hardly imagine. If I decide to leave Koln, it will be to move abroad.
It annoys me that some people think I can only perform at Koln and only when I live in this city. That gets on my nerves. They claim something that is simply not right. I can also feel well and perform at my best in other surroundings.
With Wenger hinting at possible recruitments due to the upcoming absence of Gervinho and Chamakh due to the African Cup of Nations surely Podolski is on his radar. Personally I think he would be a great signing for the gunners, but whether Wenger signs him is a different story. What do you guys think? Feel free to leave a comment below.
