PHOTO: Arsenal star reveals stadium he wishes he could have played in

Lukas Podolski has stated that he would have loved to compete in one particular ground, but it is not in operations anymore…

Arsenal star forward Lukas Podolski, who has hit the target with 48% of his total shots thus far this season and has scored with 22%, has revealed his disappointment that he could never compete at the Gunners' hallowed ground; Highbury.

Podolski began his Arsenal stint in 2012, seven years after the club moved from Highbury to the 60,000 capacity Ashburton Grove, a venue which is yet to witness any silverware achievement - a stark contrast to the many illustrious years spent at their former arena.

The German, who has netted eight Premier League goals and assisted twice (scoring or creating a goal once every 108 minutes he is on the field), has the chance to win a first major trophy in the Emirates era as Arsenal take on Hull City in the FA Cup final on Saturday, May 17.

Podolski, if cup form this season is accounted for, must start against the Tigers as the 28-year-old has made three FA Cup appearances this season, scoring three goals.
