Arsenal attacker Lukas Podolski says its positive to have so many goal scorers this season.

Podolski, Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla - the three major summer signings - have 18 between them while Theo Walcott tops the Club's scoring charts with nine.

"Yes, it's important to share the goals," he told Arsenal Player.

"Last season there was one guy, Robin van Persie, who scored 30 goals or more. Now we have four of five players who score five, six, seven or eight goals.

"I think this is important when a good player leaves the Club, it's important for some other players to score the goals."
