Arsenal fans have signalled their determination to keep Germany forward Lukas Podolski at the club after reports emerged linking him with a move away from London in January.
The Gunners are said to be willing to let the World Cup winner leave for a fee of around £4m, which is a bargain considering the experience and talent of the player in question. However it’s understandable that he wants to leave as Arsene Wenger has been extremely reluctant to give him game time, despite poor form being displayed by Santi Cazorla.
Arsenal supporters seem to be furious with the news though as the general consensus is that they want Podolski to remain at the Emirates and that letting him go would be a big mistake.
If podolski leaves that will be a bigger mistake than letting vermaelen leave and not signing another cb imo

How can you put Podolski in the “deadwood” category? Will be gutted if he leaves. Simply never given the chance by AW.

I will be very disappointed if PODOLSKI leaves the club. I was heavenly happy when he signed for Arsenal.

Podolski’s stats vs Gibraltar do warrant a look from Arsene tbf. Stood near goalscorer on 3 of 4 goals

Podolski you know.. Is he even a footballer? I’m sure all he can do is shoot a ball 100mph..

Podolski is a great player but the bench be killing him. I’m afraid he’s gonna leave soon too

Now Podolski wants to leave Arsenal. Campbell will also want to go. Wenger just doesn’t know how to rotate the squad or win for that matter
