The Gunners are keen to bring in a strong defensive midfield player this January, with Sami Khedira also believed to be on Arsene Wenger’s radar this winter.
However, Tiote is also a long-time target of Wenger’s, and the Frenchman is willing to let Podolski move to St James’ Park to help push a move through in the next transfer window.
Newcastle could do with strengthening upfront, and Podolski would surely prove a useful addition for Alan Pardew’s struggling side, despite his poor recent form in an Arsenal shirt.
