Arsenal striker, Lukas Podoslki has joined Italian giants, Inter Milan on loan until the end of the season BBC Sport has revealed.

The 29-year-old German international joined the Gunners in 2012 but failed to start a single game this season.

Roberto Mancini’s side revealed on their Twitter account: “Podolski will wear the number 11 shirt. He is in the squad for Juventus v Inter and on his way to Turin with the team.”

The German added his sincere thanks to Arsenal and their fans for their full support; “I can’t express in words my gratitude towards Arsenal fans for all they have done for me,” wrote Podolski on Instagram ahead of completing his move.

“Please know my heart always holds a place for you. I’ve loved every minute playing for Arsenal and I hope I have left my mark on the club and fans alike. Hopefully we shall meet again.”

A loan move that may be in the best interest of all parties. Podolski has a chance to play first team football, Inter have signed a quality player and Arsenal can monitor the progress of their striker.

Will Podolski ever play for Arsenal again?
