Arsenal transfer news
The 29-year-old has not been a regular starter for Arsenal this season, losing his place in the side after the summer signings of the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck, who both occupy positions he can play in.
Inter have looked the favourites to snap Podolski up for some time now, though Atletico may still be in with a chance of landing him as well, with Diego Simeone on the lookout for new signings in attack this January.
Podolski could certainly be a useful signing for a number of top clubs, and has a good goals-to-games record for the Gunners this season, impressing in limited appearances for the club.
The experienced German international joined Arsenal from Cologne in 2012 and had been a regular in the team until this season.
