An interesting rumour that has been posted by the Daily Mail claims that Arsenal are ready to swoop for German striker Lukas Podolski amidst concerns over the future of talisman and in-form striker Robin van Persie.
Van Persie has 18 months on his contract and it has been widely publicised that the striker is not willing to negotiate a contract extension until next summer.
Podolski has been previously linked with the gunners, most recently last summer where it was rumoured a £15m bid was a possibility. This time around the Daily Mail claims that the gunners are lining up a £20m bid for the German striker.
Reports in Germany say that Arsenal have sent scouts to watch the Cologne forward this season, where last season he bagged 13 goals and 7 assists. But you would definitely have to take a big pinch of salt with this bold claim.
What do you guys think? Is he good enough to play for Arsenal? Obviously he is known for his heroics for Germany, but in recent seasons the forward has definitely been a mixed bag where in his first season for Cologne he only managed 3 goals the entire season. Perhaps he would do better with higher quality service? Feel free to leave a comment below.
