Podolski flies to Milan for talks with Inter

Lukas Josef Podolski, who shares my birthday-please mark your calendars, has closed a 6 month loan deal to Inter Milan joining the Serie A league for the rest of the season. After speaking on Thursday about Inter's interest in Podolski, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger said: "The first proposal was farcical; after, they came back a bit more serious.

Podolski was an £11m signing from Cologne in 2012 but has made just 39 starts in the league under Wenger. Podolski, 29, has failed to start a Premier League match this season and missed the New Year's Day defeat at Southampton with a "tight groin". Podolski has scored 19 goals in 60 Premier League appearances during his time at the Emirates Stadium after netting 70 in 210 Bundesliga games across his spells at Bayern and Koln and was an unused substitute in Arsenal's 2-1 win at West Ham on 28 December, with his last action for the North London club coming in the 4-1 victory over Newcastle on 13 December.

Podolski on joining Inter:

"I am very happy to be joining Inter," Podolski told reporters.
"I expect so much from this adventure. I know the Italian league very well. We are aiming to qualify for the Champions League and to win in the Europa League.
"I have spoken with Mancini and I think he is a great coach."

Since the transfer window has opened and all of us will be be running the whole gamut of emotions, this is really our last chance to enjoy a day. Especially if you're a United fan because Ed Woodward will no doubt wait till Feb 1st to announce any signings.

So who do you guys want/need signed to your club?

Who do you want out of your club?

Who is leaving your club and you're having trouble coping?

How are you reaching out to players? Twitter, Facebook, IG, their WAGs IG (No, I'm not ashamed)?

Let's post potential signings stats, pics, vids to see ourselves through, especially if Real Madrid has personally offended you by being linked to the player you want.

I'm hoping for:
