Arsenal star could leave after just a single season at Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal winger Lukas Podolski only signed for the club in summer of 2012, but may already be considering leaving Emirates Stadium according to the Sun.
The Germany international is the youngest player to reach the 100 cap mark for a European side before Real Madrid star Sergio Ramos passed the milestone for Spain in the recent international break, but may struggle to match that mark of appearances for the Gunners.
He hasn’t started a match for Arsene Wenger’s side in two months, and the Sun claim that he and the manager are at loggerheads over his starting position.
The north London side has looked much more balanced with Santi Cazorla on the left in a fluid attacking three behind Olivier Giroud up front, with the Spaniard’s increased work rate just one of a number of assets he possesses over Podolski.
The 27 year-old German does not track back nearly as much as Cazorla, and in addition does not have the same skills in penetration and interplay.
Though Podolski would dearly love to play as a striker for Arsenal, he has not even outscored Cazorla, and it seems clear that the Spaniard is a better option on the left.
With Arsene Wenger seemingly reluctant to play Podolski up front, it would not be a shock if the German did depart this summer, and Galatasaray and Anzhi Makhachkala join Juventus and Atletico Madrid as potential suitors when the transfer window opens.
