Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger feels new signing Lukas Podolski will take the scoring burden off Robin van Persie's shoulders next season.

The FC Cologne ace is Arsenal's first signing of the summer.

Wenger said: "I was asked many times the question whether or not we relied too much on the goalscoring of Van Persie. He has scored 30 goals and we have tried to add somebody else who can score as well. Yes [we plan to speak with him before the Euros]. "
