Arsenal hoping a fit Lukas Podolski will help them deal with Theo Walcott's injury

Arsenal’s front line took a big hit when they lost Theo Walcott for the rest of the season with a knee injury. That could force Arsenal to be players in the January transfer when they would’ve rather avoided it. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has suggested that a healthy Lukas Podolski could be the answer for Arsenal.

“Podolski has been out for four months and after being available, it doesn’t mean you are competitive in the Premier League – it takes some time to come back,” said Wenger, via Sky Sports. “He is working hard. This week he looked sharper in training, so he is getting closer now to being completely fit again.

“If there is one (player) you want to see in front of the goal in a shooting position, it is him because Podolski is certainly one of the best finishers I have ever seen. He can play that central role when he is completely fit and is one of the potential assets we have there. When he is physically ready, he will of course help us.”
