The experienced Germany international, who has played most of his football for the club on the left of a three-man attack, filled in for the suspended Olivier Giroud during Sunday's draw with Manchester United.
Podolski's performance was low-key but, with Giroud unavailable until the final day of the season, he is Arsene Wenger's first choice to continue in the role as Arsenal continue to pursue a top-four finish.
Asked whether he intended to persist with Podolski at Loftus Road, Wenger told the club website: "At the moment, yes.
"A definite decision has not been made but if there is an opportunity then there is a good chance I will do it.
"He has the qualities because he is a good finisher. He has a good technique, and because we have a game based on very quick combinations I believe he can be a part of that.
"Overall I am convinced in the coming games he will show it."
Arsenal go into the weekend with a two-point lead over fifth-placed Tottenham, who have a game in hand.
