Lukas Podolski has urged Sami Khedira to join Arsenal from Real Madrid this summer.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with a £20m swoop for the Germany midfielder as he enters into the final year of his contract at the Bernabeu.

Sami knows how much fun he could have with me, Mesut Ozil and Per Mertesacker at Arsenal

Both Podolski and Khedira were part of Germany’s World Cup-winning squad – and the Arsenal forward is keen to see his international team-mate move to Emirates Stadium.

“I don’t have to try to convince Khedira to join Arsenal,” Podolski told Bild.

“Sami knows how much fun he could have with me, Mesut Ozil and Per Mertesacker at Arsenal.

“We had a great time together at the World Cup and I would like it very much if he comes to London.”

The 27-year-old scored once and made one assist for Real Madrid in 13 La Liga appearances last season.
