With the Germany international having struggled to nail down a regular starting berth throughout his time at Emirates Stadium, it has been suggested that he may be allowed to move on if a suitable offer is tabled.
As a proven performer at the highest level, there would likely be plenty of interest were Arsenal to open the door to a switch.
Podolski, though, claims to have been offered no indication that he will be offloaded.
The 28-year-old says he is settled in England and intends to be back in north London next season.
Podolski told reporters as he continues his preparations for a third World Cup finals appearance: "As things stand today, I am an Arsenal player (and) it won't change.
"Going to London was the right step. I had the chance to go to a big club and to play in the strongest league in the world.
"I am happy in the city, in the league, in the club. Those two years have been outstanding for me."
Podolski was restricted to just 27 appearances for Arsenal in the 2013/14 campaign due to injury, but he still managed to plunder 12 goals.
He added: "If my bad injury hadn't stopped me for almost five months, it would have been a better season again.
"Nevertheless, I am satisfied. In the end, I was a regular starter, scored eight goals and had four assists in the league. It's nothing to sneeze at."
Podolski also helped Arsenal to end their long wait for major silverware by overcoming Hull City 3-2 after extra-time in a thrilling FA Cup final.
He added on that triumph: "I am not someone that reduces himself only to the titles he won.
"Lukas Podoslki doesn't change because he won a title but, of course, a title is something awesome - even more if it's in a foreign country and in such an important competition.
"Especially from the aspect that Arsenal hadn't won anything for nine years, this success was something special."
