There are two things in this life we take with a pinch of salt:
1 – Reports from the Turkish press
2 – Reports about the future of Lukas Podolski (he’s been linked with countless clubs in the last 12-18 months).
However, the back pages in Turkey are suggesting that a deal with Galatasaray is close to being completed, while the fact Podolski is currently there (on holidays or otherwise), lends a bit of weight to the stories.
As ever it’s hard to know exactly what’s going on, especially when Lukas said last week he felt he could still offer something to Arsenal, but the likelihood of a move far outweighs his chances of staying.
We’re also reading lots into the fact he stands out as one of the only Arsenal players not to welcome Petr Cech to the club via his social media channels.
We’re breaking out the poo-o-meter and giving this a fence s(h)itting 5.
