Podolski joined Arsenal from German outfit Cologne two and a half years ago, but despite a handful of spectacular goals for the Gunners and a relatively impressive goalscoring ratio, who he has never been able to nail down a regular place in Wenger’s first team in North London.

He seems to have finally grown frustrated with the situation and is pushing for a January move, with Inter Milan confident of bringing him to the San Siro on a loan move, with Roberto Mancini’s side well aware that they would be unlikely to be able to meet the fee required to capture Podolski on a permanent deal.
