Report: West Brom, Sunderland interested in signing Lukas Podolski

Arsenal's Lukas Podolski is interesting West Brom, Sunderland and Newcastle.

Arsenal star Lukas Podolski has emerged as a surprise target for three Premier League teams.

The Sun report West Bromwich Albion, Sunderland, and Newcastle United are all interested in signing the 122-time capped German international.

Podolski, 31, is currently on loan at Inter Milan, and scored his first goal for them in midweek, a winner against Udinese from the edge of the box.

Arsenal may even be tempted into a cut-price deal, the paper report, with the forward having only one year remaining on his contract.

It is unclear if Podolski would be interested in moving to another Premier League team, with a return back to the Bundesliga more likely.

He may however decide he has a point to prove, having been overlooked by Arsene Wenger this season. Podolski was not picked to start a single Premier League game before being loaned out, but was their joint top scorer in the Champions League group stages with Danny Welbeck, netting three each.

Podolski won the FA Cup with Arsenal just a year ago, and featured in Germany's World Cup triumph shortly after.
