Arsenal are expecting to see German international Lukas Podolski head for the exit door in the January transfer window, as reported by the Daily Star.
The World Cup winner has grown increasingly annoyed at the lack of opportunities to impose himself on the first team since his return at the start of the new season.
As a result, yesterday the player admitted that he would reconsider his future with the Emirates Stadium club in the coming weeks.
As a result, Arsenal are set to press forward in their interest in Benfica ace Anderson Talisca, who has had a breakthrough start to the new season.
Talisca made the switch to the Portuguese giants in the summer.
Since moving there, he has been on incredible form, plundering goal after goal.
His excellent form has also seen him earn a call up to the Brazilian national side, which would aid Arsenal in getting him a work permit.
