Lukas Podolski may be gone, but he doesn’t appear to be forgotten. Arsenal took to Instagram to wish the German international a happy birthday, with Podolski currently evaluating his options after finishing a loan spell at Inter Milan.
Happy birthday Lukas Podolski!
Despite his unparalleled finishing abilities, Podolski has struggled while on loan in Serie A. He was finding first team football difficult to come by at the Emirates, and things didn’t change once he made the move to Italy.
He will be hoping for a more successful season in 2015/16, although it’s hard to see him finding that at Arsenal. We have a host of talented players ahead of him in the pecking order, and he is unlikely to be satisfied with retaking his place on the bench.
The World Cup winner still has plenty to offer though, and is sure to find a club willing to give him game time.
