Lukas Podolski has used social media to bid Arsenal fans farewell on Saturday, with the forward’s loan transfer to Inter Milan moving closer to completion.
The Gunners man was pictured in Milan on Friday night as the 29-year-old looked to iron out details of the deal with Inter, which is expected to see Podolski spend the second half of the season with the Serie A outfit.
With the Germany World Cup winner close to sealing his move to Inter, Podolski has now taken to social media to thank Arsenal fans for supporting him ever since he joined the club from Cologne in 2012.
He wrote on Instagram: ‘I can’t express in words my gratitude towards Arsenal fans for all they have done for me in my years in London!
‘Please know my heart always holds a place for you. I’ve loved every minute playing for Arsenal & I hope I have left my mark on the club & fans alike. Hopefully we shall meet again!’
