Galatasaray no longer interested in Arsenal exile Podolski

The 30-year-old is widely expected to depart north London having failed to impress on loan at Inter but the Turkish champions insist they are not in contention

Galatasaray are not planning a summer move for out-of-favour Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski, according to the club’s head coach Hamza Hamzaoglu.

Podolski joined Inter on loan in January having failed to establish himself as a regular starter at the Emirates Stadium but fared little better in Serie A, scoring just one goal in 19 appearances in all competitions.

The Germany international is widely expected to leave the Gunners this summer in search of first-team football and Galatasaray, who were in the market for him in January, have been mooted as a potential destination.

But Hamzaoglu insists the Turkish champions are no longer pursuing a summer move for Podolski.

“Podolski is not on our radar right now,” the Galatasaray boss told TRT. “He was in the winter but not right now.”
