Arsenal set to loan Lukas Podolski to Schalke

The team are off to a poor start in domestic action with just one point from two matches and are in desperate need of strike power with Dutch veteran Klaas-Jan Huntelaar out for several weeks with a knee problem while Peruvian Jefferson Farfa is also struggling for fitness.

Berlin: Arsenal are set to loan striker Lukas Podolski to Bundesliga club Schalke 04 as the German international looks to get more playing time in the buildup season to next year's World Cup in Brazil.

The former Bayern Munich marksman who is under contract with the Londoners until 2014 has struggled to break into Arsene Wenger's starting line-up and may be set for a return to the Bundesliga, according to reports on Friday in German daily Bild.

"Poldi is a great guy who will really suit Schalke. It would be brilliant," said former international Gerald Asamoah who recently moved to Schalke from Greuther Furth.
