Sky Sports have Arsenal fans looking into their pints with a gloomy expression on their faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern after claiming that Lukas Podolski is set to rejoin the club his summer.
The forward has been on loan at Serie A side Inter Milan yet after failing to find the back of the net on nine occasions and being omitted from the Europa League squad, it seems that Roberto Mancini is happy to call time on Podolski’s spell at the San Siro and send him back to north London.
The forward was speaking about his future at Inter – or rather the lack of it and claimed to Sportbild: ‘The chapter is not closed with Arsenal, because there is no purchase option.’
We think that Arsene Wenger could have handed Podolski more chances to impress but when a manager does not fancy you, it is never going to be easy to impress – and finding a permanent move away should be first on Podolski’s to do list come the summer.
Arsenal fans. Would you be happy to see Podolski back at the club or will this be a case of a short sharp return before you can ship him out again? Let us know your thoughts below.
