Podolski still wants to give his all for Arsenal - Mertesacker

Per Mertesacker believes Lukas Podolski is still fully committed to Arsenal despite being linked with a move away from the club.

Podolski came off the bench to score the winner in the 90th minute against Anderlecht - moments after Kieran Gibbs had cancelled out Andy Najar's opener for the hosts.

The Germany forward responded to rumours linking him with a move to north London rivals Tottenham earlier this week by suggesting "hell will freeze over" before he made the switch to White Hart Lane, and Mertesacker says his compatriot's showing in Brussels proves he remains focused on playing for the Gunners.

The story is too old to be commented.
