Lukas Podolski’s miserable time at Arsenal is set to end with Inter Milan prepared to take the striker on loan for the rest of the season.


According to a report in the Telegraph, Inter officials met with Arsenal and manager Arsene Wenger on Saturday to discuss the availability of the forward and came away confident that a deal can be struck.

The strikers intention to leave the club for regular first team football was evident for sometime. He was constantly expressing his displeasure to sit at the bench for Arsenal.


Podolski recently said: “What can I do that I’m not already doing? I played in the starting eleven in the Champions League and scored two goals, but then I was back on the bench [for the 4-1 win over Newcastle].”


“I don’t know what more I can do to convince the coach. In the next few days, I’m going to talk to him. I want to know what the club is planning for me” he added.


It is reported that Inter will pay a loan fee of around £1.5 million to keep Podolski for the rest of the season, with the view to a permanent deal at the end of the loan move.


Podolski was an unused substitute in Arsenal’s 2-1 victory at Upton Park against West Ham on Sunday. During which, Wenger hinted the striker, whose future has been up in the air for months, could be allowed to leave the club after the New Year’s Day clash at St Mary’s.


When asked about the move, Wenger said: “There’s nothing concrete. We have Mesut Ozil coming back at the beginning of January, so we have a lot of competition up front.”
