FC Cologne star Lukas Podolski's camp has hinted he is in talks with Arsenal.

The Daily Express says it seems increasingly likely Arsenal will get their man after it emerged he has told sources in Germany that he expects to move to England to link up with international team-mate Per Mertesacker at the Emirates.

A spokesman for Podolski, who could cost Arsenal as little as £10million, refused to deny the 26-year-old former Bayern Munich man is in talks to join the Gunners.
