Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger has snubbed the speculations which were linking the Gunners with a possible January move for German striker Lukas Podolski.
This comes after a recent turn of events which were pointing to a possible transfer. Arsene Wenger spoke about the possibility of transferring a striker, while Podolski stated that he will be looking for a chance to play abroad at a Champions League playing club.
“I find it very difficult to imagine changing to another club in the Bundesliga,” he told German magazine Sport Bild.
“If I leave Cologne joining a foreign club appeals to me.
“When I look at the inquiries already received I am looking to see if the club plays international or Champions League football.”
The recent statement Wenger made turns everything around and even though every fan out there was enthusiastic about Podolski’s arrival, now they’ll just wait and see what happens.
The German would be one of the best choices Wenger could make, but the recent statements can also be one of Wenger’s attempts to draw attention away from Arsenal’s real transfer targets so that the transfer fee won’t go through the roof. What do you think?
