Arsenal legend Robert Pires believes that Lukas Podolski has the potential to become a Gunners great.
The German endeared himself to Arsenal fans with a goal against north London rivals Tottenham.
“I really hope that he can become a legend here like Thierry Henry or me. He is a really good man,“ he told the German Press Agency.
“Wenger likes him and Lukas is popular with everybody here. Sometimes it is not easy to settle down in a new team and a new country.”
