Arsenal may be set for a battle to keep Lukas Podolski this summer, with Inter Milan interested in the attacker, according to reports from the Daily Star.

The vastly experience German only joined the Gunners in 2012 from FC Koln in his homeland, and despite being consistent he hasn’t set the world alight in North London.

He netted 16 goals in 42 outings in his debut year, but has struggled this term with injuries limiting him to just eight Premier League outings.

With a number of technically adept players all vying for an attacking midfield role, Podolski’s place in Arsene Wenger’s plans may soon be under threat, with rumours that he was set to be offered as a makeweight in a deal for Julian Draxler in January only serving to further such talk.

This has alerted Inter, who are set for a big summer of spending following their recent takeover.

The Serie A giants are set to confirm a deal for Nemanja Vidic from Manchester United, and have also been linked with a host of other top names including Erik Lamela and Dani Osvaldo of Tottenham and Southampton respectively.

Inter are ready to offer Podolski guaranteed action and a lucrative contract.
