Arsene Wenger says that he expects Lukas Podolski to remain at Arsenal beyond the January transfer window despite the speculation surrounding the forward’s future.

The 29-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Gunners in recent weeks after falling down the pecking order at the north London club.

Podolski has not started a Premier League game for Arsenal this season, but Wenger has revealed that no clubs have enquired about the Germany international’s availability.

Asked if he expects Podolski to be at Arsenal after the January transfer window, Wenger replied: “Yes. I have no enquiry about Podolski from anybody.”

Wenger continued: “I have good connections with Lukas, we talk about the situation. He faces a big competition on the flanks and basically that’s the consequence of him not getting the number of games he wants.

“I think he has an outstanding attitude and he works very hard in training. Our job is that – just be ready when you’re needed for the club, and he does that very well.”
