Former FC Cologne star Lukas Podolski is confident of settling quickly at Arsenal.

Podolski has spent his entire career in the Bundesliga, but is confident he will have no trouble adapting to life in the Premier League.

"I do think that the Bundesliga has done a lot of catching up in recent years and is no longer that far away from the highest level," he told the Official Arsenal Magazine. "But England still has the strongest and most attractive league in my opinion.

"The Premier League has very good stadiums, and the stronger clubs as a whole, and I'm sure I'm going to be involved in some exciting matches.

"I think I will adapt relatively quickly. I'm a player who plays in a similar style. They play fast in England, score lots of goals, there are tough battles. I enjoy this style of football, so from that point of view, I think I will become accustomed to it all in a fairly short time."
