​Arsenal forward Podolski regrets Inter Milan loan decision

Arsenal striker, Lukas Podolski, believes it was "a mistake" to join Internazionale on loan last season and insisted that he wants to return to the Emirates Stadium, reports The Guardian.

The Germany international has been linked with a move away from Arsenal this summer with Turkish champions Galatasaray an interested party.

Speaking to German newspaper Bild, Podolski said: "I've always felt comfortable there. With the fans, with the team and also with the manager. I'm going back to play, I have to say my qualities suit Arsenal.

"Inter? Last season went how it went. English football is the one which best suits my style, but I know how suddenly everything can change.

"I have characteristics to help different teams, but it was a mistake to go to Inter with no redemption clauses.

"In football there are times when everything doesn't work out for the best. You're not always playing as a starter, and you just have to accept the decisions and work on your own game.

"That's what I did, but now I'm looking forward."
