I keep seeing these rumours Arsenal are in the hunt for Lukas Podolski and I have to admit that it excites me a little.
Of course, they are only rumours, but if there was some truth in the talk around town, then he would be an ideal acquisition to the squad.
He has plenty of experience at the top-level in football and can play as striker or as a wide player.
Whenever I have seen Podolski play he has always impressed me. That left foot of his is sweeter than honey. With sugar on top.
He has played nearly 100 times for Germany at the ripe old age of 26 so he has undoubted quality.
The man himself has bigged up Arsenal recently too. Flirting and batting his eye-lids away like a good 'un.
Now, whether this flirting is a come-and-get-me plea I don't know, but I have seen that he has only 18 months left on his contract with his club FC Köln.
So, like many others in the past, Lukas could be using the good name of Arsenal Football Club to get a new deal with Köln.
That is the sceptic in me. However, he could actually like Arsenal and want to move to us.
Lukas Podolski is, by all accounts, a boyhood FC Köln fan. It could prove difficult for him to leave them.
He has done in the past though, leaving for Bayern Munich.
It is all ifs and buts, and the main question is whether Arsene Wenger actually wants the player.
I have no doubt Wenger admires him but who knows what goes through the bonce of the gaffer?
In my opinion, not that it is worth much mind, I think that the German would be a fantastic signing for us.
He is high-profile, high-quality, would be a purchase of intent, and lastly show that Arsenal mean business.
