It would appear that German World Cup winner Lukas Podolski will find himself back at the Emirates next summer after Italian Serie A club Inter Milan have changed their minds about making the deal permanent.

The Arsenal forward only joined the San Siro club in January after complaining about the amount of playing time he was getting at the Emirates, and now reports in Italy claim the former Cologne player is not as good as they first thought.

So far the 29-year-old has made just six appearances for Roberto Mancini’s side which leads Tuttosport to claim that he will be on his way back to London unless Arsenal can do a deal with another club.
