The £11million German striker has not started a game for two months and believes he could be sold by boss Arsene Wenger in the summer.
A source said: “Lukas is very happy at Arsenal, he loves the fans and enjoys living in London but he is increasingly worried that Wenger may have a problem with him.
“He is frustrated at not playing for such a long time. He is an experienced player and he wants to play football.”
Podolski has scored 13 times since his move from Cologne last summer.
But the 27-year-old, who has won 108 international caps, was an unused substitute against West Brom seven days ago and will once again be on the bench for today’s clash with Norwich.
SunSport revealed last month that Juventus and Atletico Madrid are showing an interest in Podolski.
But Turkish giants Galatasaray, who tried to sign him in 2012, are again interested in the forward.
Mega-rich Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala are also keen.
Along with his goals, Podolski has delivered nine Premier League assists, which has put him second on the list behind Chelsea’s Juan Mata.
But it is understood Podolski is desperate to play in a central role — either as an out-and-out striker or in the No 10 role — rather than out on the left.
He was a regular for Arsenal throughout the first half of the season, although he was substituted in his first 16 matches.
Podolski’s first full 90 minutes came in the 2-0 Champions League win over Montpellier on November 21.
And he has drifted out of boss Wenger’s first XI since starting against former club Bayern Munich in the Champions League on February 19, despite scoring in the 3-1 defeat.
Equally, though, Arsenal have won six of their last seven Premier League games.
Wenger’s side are fifth but will move above Spurs into a Champions League spot — with both teams having played 32 games — if they beat the struggling Canaries at the Emirates.
Meanwhile, the Gunners’ England midfielder Jack Wilshere will start against Norwich today after recovering from his latest ankle injury.
