Former Tottenham star Jamie Redknapp feels Lukas Podolski will make a big impact at Arsenal.

The FC Cologne striker is expected to join Arsenal in the summer.

Redknapp wrote in the Daily Mail: "Lukas Podolski will give Arsenal extra firepower and will be an inspired capture by Arsene Wenger. With 43 goals for his country he is a prolific tournament scorer.

"The German was sent off at the weekend and grabbed his Cologne coach by the throat, so expect fireworks.

"Like Luis Suarez, he has to prove he's worth the hassle. He's only 26 and they can't keep being reliant on their Robin to keep scoring."
