Arsenal fans have mixed reactions in the Football Transfer Tavern after the Daily Star revealed that Lukas Podolski has shockingly talked up a move away from the Emirates Stadium, linking himself with a return to FC Koln.
The German international forward has played a bit-part role for the Gunners over the past few seasons and is widely seen as a fringe player despite his stature in the game.
He has now threatened the North London club, saying that if his situation doesn’t improve, he will push for a move back to his boyhood club FC Koln.
Podolski started his career at Koln and returned to the club in 2009 after three years at Bayern Munich before joining Arsenal in 2012.
He said: “I can imagine a transfer to Cologne in the next few years because I’m always attached to the club.
“I have always said that I want to hear this hymn again when walking up the stairs with the number 10 shirt.
“That’s what I dream about and I hope it comes true again.”
