Arsene Wenger has stated his desire to keep Lukas Podolski at Arsenal after rumours in both the British and German media linked him with a loan move to Schalke.
Podolski has stated his desire to stay at the club in the past and Wenger’s quotes after his two-goal display away to Fulham yesterday suggested that the German will be staying at the Emirates Stadium at least past the summer transfer window.
"“I am pleased for him because he hasn’t started much recently more because of the balance of the team than his performances.“I am pleased because he plays with a lot of spirit and he can score goals. Everybody in the squad loves Lukas and I want to keep him.“When a player doesn’t play he is not happy and recently he did not always start but if you look at his and Olivier Giroud’s goalscoring record it’s very good.” – Arsene Wenger says he wants to keep Lukas Podolski at Arsenal."
Lukas Podolski appears to be staying at Arsenal, despite rumours linking him with a loan move to Schalke.
