Lukas Podolski's agent Nassim Touihri has confirmed that the striker will leave Arsenal during the summer transfer window.
The Germany international returned to the Emirates after spending five months on loan at Internazionale last season.
But he will leave the club on a permanent basis after boss Arsene Wenger confirmed that he cannot guarantee first-team football to the 30-year-old.
"We had good talks with Wenger," Touihri told Bild.
"He wanted to keep Lukas at Arsenal but could not guarantee him a starting position.
"That's why we agreed to make a transfer."
