Arsène Wenger will assess his striking options this summer after finalising a deal for Lukas Podolski.

The Germany international's move to Emirates Stadium was confirmed this week and gives Wenger added firepower alongside Robin van Persie, Marouane Chamakh and Ju Young Park, as well as on-loan duo Nicklas Bendtner and Carlos Vela.

Wenger appreciates that all of his strikers need time on the pitch and he will discuss their futures in the coming months.

"That is a situation we have not sorted out yet but we will do that, of course, at the end of the season," said Wenger.

"They need opportunities to play and some players didn’t get enough opportunities here during the season. We will try to give them an opportunity to play if they get the chance somewhere else."
