Galatasaray are preparing to make a loan offer for the Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski.
According to the Turkish newspaper Fanatik, the Lions will be able to free up funds to sign the World Cup winner once they have parted company with Goran Pandev, Blerim Dzemaili, Emmanuel Eboue, Yiğit Gökoğlan and Engin Baytar.
Galatasaray want to loan Podolski until the end of the season with a buy-out clause included in the deal.
Podolski admitted that Galatasaray are keeping tabs on him and revealed that he does not know whether he will stay in London or leave in January.
“I spoke about Galatasaray’s interest in the past, I do not know what will happen in January,” Podolski said.
“Galatasaray did make me an offer, they have been in talks with me via my agent for a while.”
Podolski has played just 88 minutes of Premier League football this season for the Gunners this season.
