Galatasaray meet with Arsenal officials ahead of game over Podolski transfer


Galatasaray officials have met with Arsenal’s representatives ahead of the UEFA Champions League clash at the Turk Telekom Arena.

According to a reports in the Turkish press, Galatasaray enquired about the availability of Lukas Podolski in January.

The North London club have placed a €7 million valuation on the German international which may prove to be a stretch too far for Galatasaray.

The German international is reported to be unhappy at Arsenal due to a lack of playing time.

“I don’t say that I want to leave or that I leave in winter. I just think about my situation and my situation is unhappy,” Podolski was quoted as saying in the Guardian.

“It is like anyone who is not getting a chance at doing their job.”

Podolski has played just 88 minutes of Premier League football this season for the Gunners.
