Arsenal fans are smiling at the latest claim coming from Metro, who seem to think that one of the Gunners players has made it very clear he will never be making the north London switch to Tottenham Hotspur.
Lukas Podolski has been linked with a move away from the Gunners a fair few times in the last couple of months and whilst he will not rule out a move in general, there is certainly one destination that he is unwilling to leave Arsenal for – Spurs.
He took to Twitter to make it very clear that rumours needed to stop and Arsenal fans did not need to worry about having a traitor in their ranks, noting: ‘Hell will freeze over before this transfer would happen.’
Now whilst that has put a massive smile on the faces of some of our punters, they do note that it seems Podolski is not really in the plans of manager Arsene Wenger, and we think he could well be on the move this January – with a fair few clubs keen.
However, when it comes to declarations about moving to rival clubs, Arsenal fans are more cautious than most about believing everything that is said – Cesc Fabregas would be exhibit A of this!
