Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski has revealed he is open to a return to German Bundesliga in the future, stating that he would like to enjoy a third spell with FC Koln, the club where it all started for him.

The Germany international hasn’t quite managed to make the desired impact in the English Premier League, although he is hardly the only one to blame, with Arsene Wenger often playing him out of position.

And despite enjoying a prolonged run in the side over the last few weeks, Podolski could still be leaving the Gunners at the end of the current campaign, with the player hinting at a return to German Bundesliga.

After winning the FA Cup semi-final tie against Wigan Athletic at Wembley, Arsenal are just one step away from winning the coveted trophy and at the same time ending a nine-year wait for a major title.

And while the FA Cup trophy would provide a huge boost for everyone at the club, it would also seriously decrease chances of several star players leaving the Emirates at the end of the current campaign.

Namely, the mere fact soon-to-be free agent Bacary Sagna has yet to make a decision on his future is enough to suggest the Frenchman is waiting to see how the current season will pan out before he opts to either star with the Gunners or accept an offer from one of his suitors.
