Arsenal star would be interested in Galatasaray move claims agent

Lukas Podolski Germany

Arsenal star Lukas Podolski has been linked with a move away from the club.

With just over a week left until the summer transfer window closes, the future of Arsenal star Lukas Podolski remains uncertain.

The German international has struggled to nail down a first-team spot with the Gunners and featured just 20 times in the Premier League last season.

While Podolski has made no attempts to force an exit, it has been suggested that the 29-year-old is seeking more game-time which boss Arsene Wenger cannot promise.

As a result, a number of clubs have monitored the situation carefully and recent reports coming out of Italy suggest there could be a tussle between Juventus, Milan and Turkish side Galatasary for his signature.

In the latter’s case, boss Prandelli has reportedly told Galatasaray president Unal Aysal that he isn’t interested in the Arsenal star as the two discussed a possible deal.

Podolski’s agent Ali Pektas, however, has been drumming up Gala’s so-called interest by describing the Turkish giants as an attractive proposition and telling reporters that his client would be keen on a move.

"We have not held talks with Galatasaray, the clubs may have been in talks, Podolski has thought about playing in Turkey, it is something he would like to do. We would consider an offer from Galatasaray, every player wants to play regular first-team football and have the security of a long contract," Pektas said, quoted by

Podolski joined Arsenal from FC Koln for an undisclosed fee in the summer of 2013.

The Polish-born striker has gone on to represent the Emirates outfit 69 times in all competitions over the past two years, scoring 28 goals and helping the club win the FA Cup.
