Out-of-favour Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski has said that the future is still open for him at the club once his loan spell with Italian giants Inter Milan comes to an end this summer, the Guardian reports.

The German international has struggled to find his feet in Serie A and still hasn’t found the net, and earlier this week admitted that there is no clause in place to turn the loan deal into a permanent switch.
And he confessed that he may yet still return to Arsenal as he still has a year remaining on his contract at the Emirates.
“I don’t regret joining Inter,” the 29-year-old said.
“I was the one who did not want a clause [for Inter to buy him at the end of the season] because now I can evaluate everything in the summer freely and make a decision [about my future] then.
“My chapter with Arsenal is not closed. I still have a year left on my contract [there] and always got on really well with the guys and the fans.”
