Arsenal transfers: Lukas Podolski says he is unfazed by speculation linking Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain to the Gunners
Lukas Podolski says he is unfazed by the potential arrival of Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuaín at Arsenal this summer.
The Argentina international has been heavily linked with a £23m switch to the Gunners since the end of the season, and Arsene Wenger is reported to be closing in on a club-record deal for the South American.
Higuaín has scored 122 goals for Los Blancos in six seasons at Real Madrid, and the 23-year-old would provide Olivier Giroud, Poldolski and Theo Walcott with competition for a starting spot.
And Podolski insisted he would welcome Higuain or any other player at the club that would help push Arsenal on to challenge for silverware next season.
“It’s always good when good players come in. I don’t worry about a specific player. And it’s certainly not a problem,” Podolski told the Sun.
“I’m strong enough and I have qualities. And when good players come in, I’ll play with good players.
“Every season, players come in and players go. But I think it’s good news if top players come in.”
