World Cup winner knows his days at Arsenal are numbered.

The England forward Welbeck moved to the Emirates after a dramatic deadline day transfer, and Podolski, who has yet to truly break into the Gunners’ starting XI since his move from FC Koln in 2012, says that “initially” Welbeck will be picked ahead of him.
“Initially, it’s a difficult situation for me,” the German international told Kicker.
“When you buy new players for a lot of money, they have an advantage because they will play.
“But we’ve got a long season ahead of us and we’ll see what happens. When I am in top shape, I am a perfect fit for the Arsenal team and I see myself in the first XI. That’s what I work towards.
“I am not sure [but] I hope that that’s the case.”
