Gibbs has claimed that the German international is a "great person" to have among the players as they try to continue their Premier League title charge.
"Lukas Podolski is always at the centre of some craic that is going on," The Express quotes Gibbs as saying. "He is the biggest joker by far.
"He has just got something on everyone – a gimmick on every little thing. He is a great person to have in the squad. Anyone who has done something in training, anyone who speaks funny. He's always playing around."
The 28-year-old, who signed for the Gunners in 2012, has scored five goals in 10 appearances for Arsenal so far this season.
