Over the last few weeks there have been plenty of rumours flying about that Arsenal have agreed personal terms with striker Lukas Podolski. If these rumours are true it is going to be a great move for the Gunners. Podolski is a great striker; he has been young player of year and has great experience. Already this season his stats are pretty impressive. The 27 year old has played *19 games, scored 15 goals, 4 assists and a total of 53 shots. He is at the age where he can develop his skills and moving to arsenal will definitely help him with that. He also has a great left foot on him! Koln are set to be disappointed when he leaves but as their form is dreadful this season and they have slipped down to 2 places above relegation zone it seems obvious that the player will want away in the summer. As for Arsenal it’s a great move for them. Arsene has done the right job getting in there early as I can imagine there are plenty of teams that want Podolski and it avoids a bidding war. After the season Arsenal have had I’m sure fans will be relieved that Arsenal are actually making an effort to buy a decent striker so that they are not solely reliant on Van Persie who scores 80% of arsenal’s goals, and who also hasn’t confirmed whether he will be signing a new contract. I don’t happen to agree with a lot of arsenal fans speculating that Podolski will be Van Persie’s replacement. I think that both these players could join together and make a great striking partnership, something Arsenal haven’t had since Henry and Bergkamp were at the club. As an Arsenal fan I have to say, I really hope the rumours are true.
