Metro have Arsenal fans looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim that Arsene Wenger has been given a ‘play me or sell me’ warning by Lukas Podolski who is seriously considering his future at the club.
The German forward has been vocal on more than one occasion this term about his desire to leave the Emirates Stadium and it does not look like his chances of receiving regular playing time will be changing too much in the future.
The former FC Koln star claimed: “I have assessed my position in the team – and it must change now.
“Let’s see what happens in the winter, but the fact is, I’m not happy.”
As our regulars note over a pint, we would not be happy being frozen out of the first team either and spending all our time on the bench.
It seems that Podolski has finally had enough and unlike the summer, will force through a move no matter what his manager says unless things change dramatically.
Arsenal fans. Do you sympathise with Podolski or has he not showed enough in his few performances to merit a regular place in Wenger’s starting eleven? Let us know your thoughts below.
