Arsenal set to loan out Lukas Podolski to Schalke
Arsenal are set to loan striker Lukas Podolski to Bundesliga club Schalke 04 as he looks to get more playing time in the buildup season to next year's World Cup.
The former Bayern Munich marskman who is under contract with the Londoners until 2014 has struggled to break into Arsene Wenger’s starting line-up and may be set for a return to the Bundesliga, according to reports yesterday in German daily Bild.
“Poldi is a great guy who will really suit Schalke. It would be brilliant,” said Gerald Asamoah who recently moved to Schalke from Greuther Furth.
