Arsenal players make request to Arsene Wenger for Lukas Podolski to start more matches in season climax.
Arsenal star Lukas Podolski is working hard in training ahead of the Gunners’ clash with Sunderland this afternoon.

According to the Daily Telegraph, a number of Arsenal player have petitioned Wenger to give Podolski more opportunities, and are fearful that his time spent on the substitutes bench will result in him leaving Emirates Stadium in the summer.
Podolski’s deadly finishing could prove the difference in the remaining months of the season.
