Lukas Podolski Set To Join Japanese Club Vissel Kobe

share on:

Former Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski has agreed a move to Japanese club Vissel Kobe, according to reports in Turkey.

The former Germany international, who has spent the last two-and-a-half-years at Galatasaray, has agreed a three-year deal worth €15m (£12.7m), the Hurriyet Daily report.

Galatasaray are expected to receive €2.7m (£2.3m) for the 31-year-old, who has made just 13 appearances this term, scoring three goals.

The move may be seen by some as a step down as Vissel have never finished higher than seventh in the J-League since reaching the top flight in 1997.

But the former Bayern Munich ace, who has been capped by Germany 129 times, will have a chance to push them up the league.
