Arsenal and Koln agree fee for Podolski

Arsenal and FC Koln have reportedly agreed a fee of £10.9million for Lukas Podolski.

The German striker has been heavily linked with the Gunners in the past couple of weeks but now looks to be on his way to the Emirates Stadium this summer with ESPN sources suggesting a deal is extremely close.

26-year old Podolski is contracted at Koln until the summer of 2013 but will depart the RheinEnergieStadion to sign a mooted four-year deal worth around £100,00-a-week.

"The deal is very close. It would be premature to say that it has been agreed, but discussions are ongoing and it won't be long now," a source told ESPN Soccernet.
