Arsenal explain Lukas Podolski absence v Hull City in Premier League

Lukas Podolski will miss Arsenal’s Premier League clash against Hull City at the Emirates Stadium today due to illness.

Arsenal have explained why Lukas Podolski has not been included in the matchday squad for this afternoon’s Premier League clash against Hull City.

The Germany international has not been named in the starting line-up and is not on the substitutes’ bench either.

The Gunners have revealed that the 29-year-old is ill, which has prevented him from making the matchday squad.

Arsenal will probably not miss Podolski, but the absence will be a blow for the former Bayern Munich star.

Podolski has been strongly linked with a move away from the Premier League outfit in the January transfer window.
