Evening Gooners. Some interesting news coming in tonight on the transfer front with Goal.com reporting that Arsenal have agreed personal terms with Lukas Podolski ahead of a summer move to the Emirates.
I’ll give you a quick overview of the report before giving my thoughts on it:
Goal claim that the 26-year-old remains a target for Arsene Wenger after the Gunners boss had two bids turned down for the striker in the summer. But they claim the German international has now agreed personal terms with Arsenal and is in line to make the move to England in the summer.
Not to be a kill-joy or anything, but i wouldn’t be getting too excited about this rumour just yet. Sure Podolski has been linked with us in recent months and no doubt there is interest there, but i really can’t see how it’s possible he’s agreed terms on a move at this stage in the season.
I think Podolski will wait until the summer before committing his future, much like Van Persie, and these reports are nothing but speculation. Not only that, but Arsenal are also unlikely to be committing to any serious transfer moves until the end of the season when we know whether we have secured Champions League football or not, as well as knowing what Van Persie’s future is.
