The last Arsenal player to wear the number nine shirt that has now been handed to our new striker signing was the Germany international Lukas Podolski. Even though there is some debate about whether he was given a fair crack of the whip by Arsene Wenger, it is fair to say that his Arsenal career was not the success that we or the forward would have hoped.
The German ex-Arsenal winger/striker Lukas Podolski and the France hitman Karim Benzema are both very annoyed with the furore in their home countries surrounding the player selections for the Euros.
Arsenal vs Europe by Seetsuma
Summer. The Women’s World Cup is over, the Copa America is over, and the only matches to watch right now are the Gold Cup, Wimbledon, Baseball, NBA Summer League basketball and reruns of Game of Thrones. Now that it is July 11th and the EPL transfer market has officially been open for 10 days, we’ve got a bit more than just rumours to go on for a change. We’ve actually got confirmed transfers, which is exactly what I’m here to discuss!
Arsenal messed up with Podolski by DN
You will not find too many Arsenal fans out there who have taken the news that the Germany international Lukas Podolski has completed his transfer to the Turkish champions Galatasaray with anything more than a shrug of the shoulders.
Lukas Podolski is on the brink of making a permanent switch to Galatasaray. Latest reports indicated that the Turkish club is confident of sealing the transfer. If they are successful to do so, it would be after three unsuccessful attempts from the Turkish giants.
Lukas Podolski is, according to reports, close to joining the Turkish club Galatasaray. The German international striker had a frustrating last season with both Arsenal and Inter Milan. Podolski lost favour with Arsene Wenger and was unable to get any game time under him for the first half of the season. Once it was clear that he was not in his plans, Podolski decided to make a January move.
It has not been a very well-kept secret that the Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski wants out of his contract with the Gunners as much as we all want to get rid of him! Both Galatasary and Podolski himself have publicised that there have been talks about him making the move to the Turkish Super Lig this summer after Inter Milan refused to make his loan deal permanent, and now it has been reported on Turkish TV that an agreement is in place and an announcement is expected imminently.
Most Arsenal fans are agreed on the idea that Arsene Wenger should have a top quality striker on his transfer wish list for this summer window, but your guess is as good as mine as to whether the Frenchman agrees. The boss has certainly not made any moves for Arsenal in that direction yet.
