The World Cup winner has been a periphery figure this season, and has grown increasingly frustrated with his lack of first team football.
He is yet to start a single Premier League match this season, and his lack of involvement has seen him linked with a move away from North London.
Podolski has once again spoken out about his desire for more first team football, and it appears as though the former Bayern Munich man has reached breaking point.
“On a transfer, the matter needs to be resolved because it cannot go on,” he said.
“I am not 20 or 21 years old, I don’t want to wait for my chance. I am 29. I want to play, play, play!
“What more can I do than what I’m doing? I played in the first team in the Champions League, scored two goals. Then again I got benched. I do not know what more I need to show the coach.
“[Wenger] is not blind, he sees how much I give. He is also accountable for the results, I understand, but in the next few days I’m going to talk with him. I want to know what the club has intended for me.”
The German forward is undeniably talented, and is arguably the best pure finisher at Arsenal. He has a habit of going missing during big games however, and his work-rate at times leaves much to be desired.
As a fan favourite many Gooners would no doubt be sad to see him go, but his situation at the Emirates is unlikely to change drastically in the near future.
