Lukas Podolski has officially left Arsenal and joined Turkish champions Galatasaray for a fee of €4 million. The 30-year old German international will sign a three-year contract and join a talented squad, aiming for more in the Champions League in particular.
Podolski had struggled for regular football at Arsenal last season and was loaned out to Italian giants Inter during the winter. However, he failed to convince during his time in Serie A and looked likely to be shipped out by Arsene Wenger this term. The striker will now hope to recover his form and secure his spot in Germany’s squad for the 2016 European Championships in France.
