Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski 1 Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski has laughed off rumours he could join Tottenham in January, insisting “hell will freeze over” before he moves to the Gunners’ north London rivals.The World Cup winner is yet to start a Premier League match this season and reports on Monday suggested he could make a £10million switch to Spurs when the transfer window opens.Posting a link to the rumour on Twitter, Podolski wrote: “Hell will freeze over before this transfer would happen. #Poldi #aha #AlwaysAGunner #NeverCheatYourClub #AFC #Redarmy”.Germany international Podolski is desperate for first-team football and has been strongly linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium over the past few months.Turkish giants Galatasaray are thought to be keen, having originally registered an interest over the summer, though Wenger has insisted the 29-year-old remains in his long-term plans.Arsenal and Tottenham are currently level on points in the table and the two sides drew 1-1 at the Emirates Stadium last month.
