Should Arsenal have kept Podolski in North London?
Alas the dream is over for Lukas Podolski in the red and white of Arsenal, the German was shown the exit at the Emirates over the weekend in favour of a loan move to Serie A giants Inter Milan.
Podolski’s Arsenal career is most likely at an end with the Gunners with the World Cup winner posting a tribute to the club on Instagram to confirm his exit.
But was Arsene Wenger correct to let a player of Podolski’s standard go? We look at Le Prof’s thinking and the reasons Podolski should have stayed in North London
Potency infront of goal
Podolski had just one Arsenal start in the Champions League this season and still managed to score three goals.
In total he played just over 8% of Arsenal’s total Champions League group stage campaign and is arguably one of the key reasons they were able to qualify due to his crucial late goal against Anderlecht.
