Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was delighted with two-goal Lukas Podolski after victory at Fulham.

Wenger was happy for Podolski, who has been linked with a move away from London as Wenger bids to reshape his squad before the September 2 closure of the transfer window.

The Arsenal boss, who said the Germany forward is an important member of his squad, added: "I'm pleased for him, because he did not always start recently, more for balance of the team than for personal performance.

"He has always a high spirit, he's a very important player in the team and he can score goals.

"Everybody loves him in the squad, I want to keep him."
