The Germany international completed a loan move to the north London club in the January transfer window after he was deemed surplus to requirements by Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.
However, Podolski has failed to score in eight Serie A appearances for the San Siro outfit, despite Roberto Mancini handing the striker 559 minutes of top-flight action since his switch.
Speaking to Bild about his Inter future, the 29-year-old forward refused to rule out a return to Emirates Stadium.
“The chapter is not closed with Arsenal, because there is no purchase option.
“I was the first person to clear things up in the talks with Inter and say I didn’t want any kind of clause that would have let them purchase my contract rights.
“When you’re on loan you never know what can happen, so at the end of the season we’ll analyse things freely and decide the situation.”
“At Inter there have been some negative situations, but I see the bright side in all of it.
“Also, it’s generally easier to criticise someone who comes on loan, as I did this winter.”
Podolski had failed to start a Premier League games before the experienced striker’s switch to Inter in January, making seven appearances from the bench.
The World Cup winner scored 19 goals in 60 top-flight appearances in the Premier League following his switch from FC Koln in the summer of 2012.
