Podolski Has No Intention Of Ditching Arsenal For Juve

Lukas Podolski has attracted the interest of Italian giants Juventus during his first season at Arsenal but the German has dismissed the speculation that he could move their in the summer.


Podolski joined the Gunner for £10.9 million last summer and has chipped in with eight league goals this season but has struggled in recent with weeks with injury keeping him out of the side.


The former Koln forward has admitted he takes it as a compliment when other clubs show their interest in him, but has no plans to leave the Emirates Stadium.


"I want to say two things," he told Bild. "Firstly, I cannot help it that clubs are interested in me. And there are always people behind the scenes who want to float something in this business. 


"Secondly, any interest makes me proud because it is a recognition of my performancein London. It is unlikely [that I will leave] because, at the club and in the town, I feel really comfortable. 


"As a player you have peace and quiet. I appreciate that very much. Therefore, I can honestly say: I am not preparing for any change."
