Arsene Wenger was much critized for not playing Lukas Podolski in the Arsenal First team, despite his excellent goalscoring record for the club, but now the German is struggling to get a game on loan at Inter Milan it would seem like Le Prof was right.
Although Lukas Podolski has played quite a few games at Inter Milan since he was sent out on loan, it seems he has failed to impress Roberto Mancini and is running out of time to persuade the Italian manager to make his move permanent at the end of the season.
Every Arsenal fan has believed that Arsene Wenger has always had a problem with Lukas Podolski because he has never given the German international an extended run in the Gunners first team, despite being our most consistent goalscorer for the last few years.
The Arsenal winger Lukas Podolski has only been out on loan at Inter Milan for a few days, but he has already made his debut last night against the Serie A Champions Juventus, and helped his new club to pull back an equaliser in the second half.
Arsenal have been told, in no uncertain terms, that they will have to face yet another of their former players next season, unless they open the wallet, release the moths, and give Bacary Sagna the contract he is after.

Arsenal and the Vermaelen situation by Ash
There has been a lot of speculation surrounding Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen’s future at the Emirates in recent weeks and although he has stated he may have to look elsewhere in January if his situation doesn’t change by then, it doesn’t mean he definitely will leave.
It is being reported this morning that Arsenal have moved on from the pursuit of Luis Suarez from Liverpool and have turned their attention to the prolific Cameroonian striker Samuel Eto’o, who is now looking for a new home following the financial demise of the Anzhi president Suleiman Kerimov.
