Lukas Podolski has dismissed reports linking him with a move away from the club according to Sky Sports.

A number of reports in recent weeks have linked the Germany international with a move to Italian giants Juventus.

The Serie A club are in the market for a new striker as they are keen to bring in a striker partner for the incoming Atletico Bilbao forward Fernando Llorente.

It has been suggested that the Old Lady would move for Podolski should Bayern Munich beat them to the signing of their number one target, Liverpool’s Luis Suarez.

Arsenal are thought to be willing to listen to offers for the player. Podolski has enjoyed a difficult debut season and the Gunners seem likely to enter the transfer market for attacking reinforcements as they look to find a replacement for Dutch striker Robin Van Persie.

Neither Podolski nor fellow summer signing Olivier Giroud have convincingly filled the gap left by the Dutch striker prompting speculation that Arsenal will bring in fresh talent come the summer.

But Podolski has insisted he is enjoying life at the Emirates and has no intention of leaving the club. He assured Arsenal fans that the speculation was not coming from him and he fully intended to be pulling on the red and white shirt again next season.
