Podolski Looking Forward To His Arsenal Challenge

Podolski Looking Forward To His Arsenal Challenge

The Mighty Gunners new striker, Lukas Podolski says he`s looking forward to the challenges he faces in the Premier League.

Arsene Wenger took the unusual step (for him at least) of tying up the signature of a player before the season had even finished, and now it`s over we`re being treated to some insight into the mind of our new player.

The German centre forward says he can`t wait to get started.

"Arsenal are a great club, here in Europe and all over the world, at the time the transfer negotiations started between the two clubs, the decision was made really quickly. I`m now looking forward to the challenge at my new club and cannot wait to start after Euro 2012." He said

"I had a very good season with Cologne, I played well and as a result I`m now going to Euro 2012 with lots of confidence. After that, I will be joining up with my new team-mates at Arsenal and it is my goal just to do my best and be successful there."

Podolski also says he felt it was the right time in his career to sample the tastes of a different league after spending all his career in Germany.

"For me it doesn`t really matter when you take such a step in your career, whether it is now or a few years earlier, it`s difficult to say when the time is right. But I`m now 26, and nearly 27, so this step in my career might just be the right time to do it."

I certainly hope so. He's got a left foot similar to a certain Arsenal striker. I only wish that he's here to compliment that player and not replace him.

I love that close up shot of his left foot in the Arsenal.com video. I don't know why but I have already almost fallen in love with it. I don't if it's the shape of it or the way it moves while striking the ball that's affected me in this way.

EG, as long as you don't admit to loving Gibb's tackle like a certain Mr Walcott we'll overlook it. ;)

Top signing. Will make counter-attacking football a genuine reality. And if RVP were to leave, we have a ready made replacement.

Poldi is going to be immense for us next season. He is strong and very direct. Never shy in front of goal either. The idea is for Robin and him to play in the same side; that's going to happen.
