The Germany World Cup winner has been linked with a move to Serie A this summer with reports claiming that Juventus and Napoli have both made offers.

Podolski was left out of Arsenal’s squad at the weekend and the 29-year-old fuelled speculation of his departure on Monday by posting cryptic message on social media.

The Gunners striker said on Instagram: “Things work out best for those who make the best of the way things work out. Opportunities don’t happen, you create them!’

Podolski’s agent Ali Pektas, however, claims there has been no interest in his client from Serie A clubs.

"I read in the newspapers that Juventus and Napoli were interested in Lukas," Pektas told tuttomercatoweb.it.

"But there has been no approach from either of those clubs.

"I don't know if he will go to Italy in this transfer window. I can't say anything for sure.

"The only certainty is that Lukas has a contract with Arsenal."

Podolski, who is also reportedly a target of Turkish side Galatasaray and Bundesliga side Wolfsburg, joined Arsenal from Cologne in the summer of 2012 and has two years left on his contract.

He plays better on the left not as a lone striker in my opinion.
