Arsenal star Lukas Podolski has been catching up with Ronaldo.

Arsenal star Lukas Podolski has been preparing for any potential game time he gets for the club by hanging out with one of the world's best ever strikers.

The Gunners forward caught up with Brazilian legend Ronaldo, who was until 2014, the World Cup's all-time leading goalscorer.

Podolski has not started a single Premier League or Champions League game this season for Arsenal, and has made little secret of his desire to move on if the situation does not change.

While Lionel Messi is widely regarded as the best player of his generation over the past two decades, many consider Brazil's Ronaldo to have been a better player at his peak, and the Argentine even admitted Ronaldo was his hero growing up.

Arsenal face Southampton this coming week, who Podolski did start against in the Capital One Cup this season, a 2-1 defeat.
