The Gunners boss responded to recent quotes from the German international, who has gone on record to say he is unhappy with his current fringe role in the Arsenal team and that he will look to move to another club if things don’t change by January.

Juventus and Inter Milan have recently been linked with the 29-year-old, who joined Arsenal from FC Cologne back in 2012, but who is no longer considered a key player for the side after falling behind summer signing Alexis Sanchez in the pecking order.

Podolski has spent much of the season so far on the bench, but has recently warned Wenger that he would not be happy to continue this way for much longer.

However, Wenger has now stated that he sees Podolski as part of his plans, and that there is no point in thinking about a move away from north London while there is no transfer window on, and that he demands full commitment from his team while that is the case.

“It is quite simple, there is no transfer market at the moment. When there is no transfer market, you are all on board – or not on board. It is like that,” the manager said.

“This is a job where you can only be successful if you’re fully committed. You cannot be half in and half out, so all this transfer speculation is not considered at all.

“We are all on board to get results, and Podolski will be part of that.”
