Most Arsenal fans were sad to see the 29 year old leave, as he was one of the most clinical players at the club.

Nobody can deny his goalscoring ability, but his work-rate and off the ball movement did not make him the perfect fit for Arsenal in his two years at the Emirates. Another reason Wenger might have wanted to move him on is due to his large wages, believed to be around £95,000 per-week.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to Podolski’s departure:
