Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski has clinched his move to Inter Milan on loan.

Arsenal hero Lukas Podolski has said Inter Milan made the decision to join the club 'easy.'

The German international clinched a loan deal to sign for Inter on Monday afternoon, after a frustrating season so far at Arsenal.

Despite scoring three goals in all competitions, he had not been selected to start a single Premier League game all season.

Podolski said in an Instagram message that he wants to pay back the faith of new boss Roberto Mancini with 'strong performances', and follow in the footsteps of former Inter stars like Ronaldo - who he has recently been pictured with.

Inter are currently sat down in 11th place in the Serie A table, and will be hoping Podolski can help inject the enthusiasm and passion the squad need to improve.
