Arsenal stalwart Ray Parlour has said that the signing of Lukas Podolski will certainly enable Robin van Persie to become even better. Robin van Persie has can one of the reasons for Arsenal to be challenging for the third position this season after a very poor start.
The Dutchman has so far scored 33 goals in the Premier league alone, but he is out of contract after just one season. He has been linked with a move to Manchester City, who are willing to offer him up to £ 250,000 a week. As a result, Arsenal are lining up the signing of Lukas Podolski as a replacement for van Persie. Ray Parlour, though, suggests that both Lukas Podolski and van Persie can play in the same team, with the latter to benefit from it hugely.
Ray Parlour won 3 league titles with Arsenal during his career with the London team. Now, he has said that he is extremely looking forward to the prospect of seeing both the strikers at the club next season. Even though there has been no development with regard to the Robin van Persie contract situation, Parlour has said that van Persie will eventually sign a long-term contract and that he has the best possibility to play regular football at Arsenal.
