Lukas Podolski (l): The striker says he is relishing linking up with Germany tea

The German forward, who arrived from FC Koln last summer, limped out of the Gunners' Champions League qualifier against Fenerbahce with a torn hamstring that is likely to keep him out of action until early next year.

His Germany team-mate Ozil joined on deadline day for a club-record fee believed to be in the region of £42.5million, and Podoloski says he cannot wait to play in the same team as the 24-year old.

"Mesut and I are going to rock Arsenal," Podolski told German newspaper Bild.

"It's great that he's coming - he's a good friend and a brilliant footballer.

"He's a great fit for us. We're already playing great football; the only thing that was missing was the final punch, that element of surprise. That's exactly what Mesut will give us.

"It is extremely sad, I would have liked to have played with Mesut straight away, not watched him from the stands. But I can't change that, I can't sew the muscle back together again."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
