FC Koln striker Lukas Podolski has made it clear that money is not a motivating factor for where he continues his football career.

The Germany international is being heavily linked with a summer move to Arsenal but has reportedly also been offered big money from Russian clubs Lokomotiv Moscow and Anzhi Makhachkala.

However, Podolski says playing for cash is not his number one priority as he gets nearer to departing Cologne at the end of the season.

"Money is not the most important thing for me," the 26-year old told Sport-Bild. "What is crucial is the development of my game."
