Arsene Wenger has heaped praise on Arsenal new boy Lukas Podolski for his finishing ability.

The Germany international has scored three goals in as many games for the Gunners, settling quickly in north London.

Arsenal boss Wenger has been impressed by the 27-year-old, and says he always expects him to score when he gets into dangerous positions.

“You like to see him in front of goal,” Wenger told Arsenal’s official website.

“He doesn’t get there many times per game, but when he gets there, you always think we have a good opportunity to score because he is a fantastic finisher.

“If you look at [each] chance, he looks at the keeper first.

“He takes care of his control, and after he will not mishit, he will finish.”
