Bundesliga side will not be drawn on striker being linked to Arsenal

Cologne have declined to comment on speculation linking Lukas Podolski with a move to Arsenal. Reports have suggested that the Gunners have already agreed a deal in the region of £10.9million to bring the Germany international to Emirates Stadium in the summer. The 26-year-old has netted 16 goals in 20 Bundesliga games this season, bringing him to the attention of Arsene Wenger. However, the German side were remaining tight-lipped over the affair. "There is nothing to make any comment about, from the viewpoint of FC Cologne," a spokesperson told Dutsche Presseagentur. Podolski's agent, Kon Schramm, was also not giving anything away when questioned by journalists. He added: "We are not out to make any official comment on this affair."
