Arsenal to bid for £10m Euro 2008 star: Better value than Villa and Benzema!

Posted by

If you believed everything you read, then you would think that Arsene Wenger has gone to watch Euro 2008 with a suitcase full of money, ready to offer it to just about any striker on show…..and here is the latest bout of frenzied speculation!

Wenger is also set to move for Germany striker Lucas Podolski if he loses both Hleb and Adebayor. (The Mirror)

Lukas Podolski has told new Bayern Munich coach Jurgen Klinsmann that he mayconsider his future at the club after Euro08, according to The Bild. (various)

£10m-rated Podolski appears to have the pre-requisite parts that make up an Arsenal style player. He has vision, he knows how to pass and possesses a great deal of flair. He does seem determined to leave the Bundesliga and, in many ways, he may be better value than the huge transfer fees needed to secure the likes of David Villa and Karim Benzema, two other players often linked with a move to the Emirates. So what do Arsenal fans think, is Lukas a potential Gunner or is this a non-starter?
