Lukas Podolski to Galatasaray? Arsenal give Turkish club the green light for sale of forward
But the Gunners have told Galatasaray that Joel Campebll is not for sale
Arsenal have told Galatasaray that they are willing to sell Lukas Podolski, but warned the Turkish club off Joel Campbell, according to reports.
The Sun have reported that Galatasaray have made a combined £22m bid for both of the Gunners' forwards, but manager Arsene Wenger is keen to give the Costa Rican international Campbell a chance at the Emirates.
The north London club have reportedly told Galatasary, however, that they are willing to listen to a separate offer for Podolski, who joined Arsenal in an £11m deal from Cologne in 2012.
While it has not been a failure, the 29-year-old Podolski has not excelled as many would have hoped during his two years with the club, scoring 19 goals in 53 Premier League appearances.
