The Germany international has made 10 appearances for the Gunners this season after missing the early stages of the campaign with a hamstring injury.

The 28-year-old marked his comeback with a goal against West Ham United on Boxing Day and played 72 minutes as Arsenal beat Crystal Palace last weekend.

And defender Gibbs says that the forward is a “great person” to have around the team as the north Londoners look to challenge for the Premier League title in the remaining 14 games.

“Lukas Podolski is always at the centre of some craic that is going on,” Gibbs told the Daily Express. “He is the biggest joker by far.

“He has just got something on everyone – a gimmick on every little thing. He is a great person to have in the squad.

“Anyone who has done something in training, anyone who speaks funny. He’s always playing around.”
