Lukas Podolski Passes Medical Ahead Of £10.9m Arsenal Move – Report

There has been yet another sign today that Lukas Podolski is heading to Arsenal this summer, after reports the striker successfully passed a medical yesterday.

Lukas-Podolski-Germany

Morning Gooners. There has been yet another sign today that Lukas Podolski is heading to Arsenal this summer, after the Daily Star revealed that the striker successfully passed a medical yesterday.

The report claims that the 26-year-old underwent a medical examination on Tuesday, with Gunners officials in close proximity having travelled to Germany to finalise a £10.9m deal.

The Star also claim we are set to break our transfer record this summer by launching a £30m bid to sign Dorussia Dortmund’s Mario Gotze, but i’m not convinced by that if i’m honest. I’d love to see Gotze at Arsenal, don’t get me wrong, but i just can’t see us paying that kind of money.

What does look promising, is the signing of Podolski. Each day we are hearing a new development and the signs are looking good that he’ll be an Arsenal player in the summer.

But we’ve been here before, Juan Mata was all set to be a Gooner last summer before signing for Chelsea, so let’s remain calm until it’s officially announced.

    why would gotze leave a team on the rise, they are topping the league again and certified champions league football. he will not leave this year to anyone

      Not saying he will leave but the german league is no BPL. Dortmund won the league last year and still their best player (sahin) left.

    I hope Podolski will not be a floop like Gervinho, his a left foot striker like RVP so is he going 2 bench RVP or will RVP move wide?

      No R.V.P will not be benched. Arsene wenger may use 4 4 2.

    podolski plays on the left for germany where he has scored 40+ goals so i can see him playing on the left instead of gervinho with RVP up front.

    About Poldi: I beleave he can fly I beleave he can shake the world(like our flying dutchmen). Get him and the Belgian wonder including.

    I think bringing in harzard will and podoski with mario gotez will be an excellent team or squad just like napoli with all dis player dey will bring a lot of trouphy to d club.pls wenger do dat if u are d best coach in d world.

      so if we spend £30m on Hazzard £30m on gotez and £11m on Podolski our weak at defending team will be so much better hahah, yes arsenal go out and spend £71million on unproven (PL wise) talent that havnt got a defencive bone in their body.
      looks like we have podolski which is a good signing, we dont need gotez as we have 6CM already and Hazzard would be nice but he is £30mil and has Man U, Real and Chelsea after him

      LETS GET ANOTHER CB AND GK

    I dont really see the need for us to pay such huge amonut of money on a player like hazard who is yet to prove his worth at the top.We have chamberlain who can play on the wing and also behind the strikers.I think bringing in someone like Gotze would be better.The German league is far more competitive than the french league.

    I think Arsene should try everything possible to get Vertoghen.He can play at the left full back,central defence and even defensive midfield position.He is three in one.Getting a reliable backup goalkeeper is not a bad idea.UP GOONER

    this is the first time Wenger is buying a fans’ choice player.He normally buys unknown players who sometimes dont excell. this time, he will not be blamed if podolski proves to be another chamak. And why is podolski going for a medical now? anything can happen between now and May. As for Mata, its good he didnt join us.he said with his own mouth that he wanted to join a ‘team’ that will win trophies. he will wait forever

    Don’t talk of Gervinho dat way. Even though he’s not bagged in many goals, his superb performance is unquestionable.

    Why on earth would you give a player a medical 5 months before he can kick a ball for you? Only an idiot could come up with this story.

    podoski will be a good signing to arsenal, but we need players like Hazard, mario Gotiz, to help arteta and rosisky, becourse ramsey and diaby are suplus to requrment, if wenger realy want to take arsenal to a new level he has to buy this players with ventergon. Insha-Allah the team will be ok.

    Hello Macurly Adeshina, point of corretion for U Gevihno is not a flop at arsenal, most of d goals by RVP are passes from GVHO. Hv U ask why RVP goal scoring has reduced of late cos’s GVHO has not been playing much of late, he is a winner not a flop. Open ur eyes and stop lookin for only goals.
