Report: Podolski will sign for Inter

Lukas Podolski 2 Germany

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski will be joining Inter in January.

German international Lukas Podolski has openly admitted that he may have to leave Arsenal in search of game time and his destination could be Inter.

Podolski has been an unused substitute four times in Arsenal's last eight matches and is clearly low down in the pecking order.

Rather than warming the Arsenal bench, Podolski may opt to head for the exit in January and he will certainly have offers.

Juventus and Napoli have both been linked with Podolski, but according to the latest reports from the Daily Star, Inter are the new frontrunners to sign him.

The Daily Star reported back in March that Inter were keen to sign Podolski at the same time they were putting together a contract for Nemanja Vidic.

No offer emerged in the summer, but Arsenal are likely to be open to cashing in on Podolski, whose contract expires in June 2016.

Inter have been struggling from a lack of attacking options but a rejuvenated Pablo Daniel Osvaldo, who is on loan from Southampton, has shown signs of his potential.
