Tottenham are ready to compete with Arsenal for FC Koln striker Lukas Podolski.

The Daily Mail says Podolski is expected to command a similar fee to that asked for Manchester City's Adebayor, who also wants £140,000-a-week salary, yet comes with significantly less demands in the wages department.

Arsenal and Lazio, where Podolski's international team-mate Miroslav Klose is enjoying a stellar season, have also been linked with the Cologne forward, who has scored nine goals in 11 Bundesliga appearances term.
