Cologne want to hold onto Podolski despite Arsenal interest

Cologne are confident that star man Lukas Podolski will commit his future to the club amid reported interest from Arsenal.

The German international, 26, is contracted to the club until 2013, but has been linked with a move away, with ESPN claiming that the Gunners are rumoured to be keeping tabs on his situation.

“I am trying to stay indifferent to rumours like this,” Cologne general manager Volker Finke said. “We all know what we’re facing.

“Some time around Christmas we will be going to meet to try and thrash out the contract extension of Lukas Podolski.

“I have already spoken to his agent, Kon Schramm. We have no clear date just now. Maybe we will meet two weeks before Christmas or two weeks after Christmas. We should fix this without any pressure.”
