Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski needs to find a club that is willing to accommodate his skill set into their tactics.

That’s according to German international team manager, Oliver Bierhoff.

Speaking to journalists at a press conference, Bierhoff said “Lukas is a player who needs space, who lives from his movement. As an offensive force, it is really important for him to have some confidence.”

Bierhoff added, “Moving to Inter in Serie A has been a huge and a difficult step at the same time. He came to a team that struggles as well and that has not found itself.

“I am really convinced that Lukas can find back his strength if he regains his confidence, if he feels the confidence of the coach and the team and if he finds the joy. 

“When Lukas chooses his next club, it is very important that he has a great feeling. The role of the club in its league or its reputation is not that important, but that he finds back the joy.”

Unfortunately for Podolski, and indeed Arsenal, his performances at Inter have not been the showcase that would have had clubs clamouring for his services in the summer. He has yet to score for the Italian giants, despite appearing in 11 games since joining in January.

With such a poor return, it’s hard to envision any top club wanting his services.

If a lesser club does comes in, it’ll certainly be on the premise that Podolski may available on the cheap, due to the lack of demand for his services and Arsenal’s desire to get his wages off the books.

All in all, the outlook for the summer of 2015 does not look good for Lukas Podolski.
