World Cup winner hints at Arsenal exit after slamming Wenger

Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski has hinted he could leave Arsenal in January, reports the Express.

The German international has also taken a swipe as manager Arsene Wenger, having grown frustrated at his lack of first team opportunities at the Emirates.

The World Cup winner has made just four substitute appearances in the Premier League this season, and hopes to impress potential suitors whilst away on international duty.

“I’ve spent the last four months making brief appearances,” Podolski said. “I’ve had to wrap myself up warm in my winter coat with my hat and scarf on to watch the others playing.

“I would rather show Arsenal what I am capable if, but this chance to show what I can do is not being given to me.

“I want to play football for many years to come so am I meant just to say everything’s fine and sit my contract out?”

On a move he added: “Anything is possible nowadays. You can’t rule anything out.”
