Bundesliga identities are convinced Lukas Podolski is on his way to Arsenal. Former Bayer Leverkusen manager Reiner Calmund says the FC Cologne star will be joining Arsenal in the summer.

"I would bet a fortune on it [Arsenal transfer]! I talked with Lukas during the carnival. He is fixated on clubs in England, and I believe that there is a 90 per cent chance that he will move to Arsenal," said Calmund to SPORT1.

"Nothing has been made official yet. Koln calculated a price of €20m. Arsenal, however, will not easily blow out €20m for a player who has just a year left on his contract.

"Arsenal are a club with ambitions and he will explode there."
