Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski is unsure of where his future lies after he returns from Inter Milan, reports the Daily Star.
The Germany international has been with the Nerazzurri since January, and hasn’t exactly set the world alight at the Serie A club. The 29-year-old has scored just once in 15 appearances in the Italian top flight, to continue the struggles he had in the Premier League before leaving the Gunners temporarily.
He only played seven times in the division, all from the bench. New signing Alexis Sanchez has made the left wing position his own since arriving in the summer, meaning that the World Cup winner was unable to feature in his usual role at the Emirates.
Podolski’s temporary deal at the San Siro ends in the summer, and he doesn’t know what will come next. However, the striker does seem interested in staying with the Milanese side, claiming that he is now settled in the division.
He said: “I could stay here [in Milan], go back to London or play elsewhere. I cannot confirm anything now. I have a year of my contract with Arsenal left and I have talked to others, I’m open to everything.
“I always try to do more, I train hard and I always want to play but in the end the coach chooses the team. It is important to have goals, and ours is the Europa League. It’s not easy when you arrive in a new league. I think I am settled now.”
