Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski linked with Serie A club

Napoli are reportedly set to make a January bid for Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

The Germany international is yet to start a Premier League match for the north London club this season.

Serie A club Napoli are desperate to bolster their attacking options this winter and the 29 year old forward is the ideal option on bringing to Italy.

It would be difficult to see the the World Cup winner leave the Emirates, as the Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has recently insisted that he has no intention to sell the forward in January.

However the report has suggested that the Italian club are ready to launch a bid for the out-of-favour Podolski, who was part of Germany’s World Cup winning squad this summer.
