Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski reveals that he isn't concerned about the potential arrival of Gonzalo Higuain from Real Madrid.

Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski has revealed that he is not worried that the potential arrival of Gonzalo Higuain could limit his first-team opportunities.

The Argentine has been heavily linked with a move to Gunners this summer, with reports suggesting a deal to bring the 25-year-old to the Emirates Stadium.

Podolski told The Sun: "It is always good when good players come in. I don't worry about a specific player. And it is certainly not a problem.

"I am strong enough and I have qualities. And when good players come in, I will play with good players.

"Every season players come in and players go. But I think it is good news if top players come in."

Podolski scored 16 goals in his first season with Arsenal after joining the club last summer for £11m from Cologne.
