Lukas Podolski looking like to be heading to Inter Milan.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has indicated that German international forward Lukas Podolski may never play for the club again, report the Daily Star, after former Cologne forward Podolski missed out on today’s Premier League defeat to Southampton with injury.
Podolski has a groin issue that is also likely to rule him out of Sunday’s FA Cup third round tie against Hull City at the Emirates Stadium – and could even mean that he is a Serie A player by the time he is back up to fitness.
Whilst Wenger dismissed Serie A giants Inter Milan’s opening offer for Podolski as derisory, he did indicate that talks were ongoing and that a deal could be in the pipeline:
“The first proposal was farcical. After they came back a bit more serious, then we will see what happens now.”
“Inevitable? Not in the transfer market, it’s very difficult to say, but we’ll see later.”
