Another day, another conversation about Lukas Podolski here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Daily Telegraph claim that the Gunners are ready to allow the German forward to leave on loan.
Arsenal would prefer a permanent deal for the forward with Podolski’s time at the club seeminglyover but Juventus are considering a loan deal with a view to a permanent move.
As one of our punters claim, we are still astounded that Arsene Wenger turned down Mario Balotelli not once but twice.
As we saw from their game at the weekend, another forward is in dire need at the Emirates Stadium and with the majority of Arsenal fans wanting to go one better this season and lift the title, we are certain that another striker is needed – especially should Podolski leave the club.
Juventus are also considering a move for Javier Hernandez and as one of our punters notes, the Manchester United player certainly needs a move away from Old Trafford.
Arsenal fans. Who would you like to see join the club? Would you let Podolski leave or is he a good player to keep around for the bench and substitute appearances? Let us know your thoughts below.
