Man City go for Bayern Munich's Podolski

Manchester City are interested in Bayern Munich striker Lukas Podolski.

The Mirror says City have made Podolski their next major target as they bid to turn the club into a Premier League superpower.

Podolski, 23, would still represent a major coup as he has smashed a staggering 30 goals in 56 matches.

He is far superior to Germany team-mate and Stuttgart striker Mario Gomez, who City tried to buy on Deadline Day, and admitted: "Everything is possible."

Podolski added: "I would be a bad footballer if I contented myself by sitting on the bench.

"I could tolerate it if it was a case of two or three weeks, but there comes a point when one has to draw the line and say: 'This is too much! I'm not making any progress here'."
