Podolski interested in transfer to AS Roma

Wantaway Bayern Munich striker Lukas Podolski claims Italian side Roma are interested in signing him.

The 23-year-old Germany frontman has requested a move away from Bavaria after growing frustrated with the lack of opportunities under Jurgen Klinsmann this season.

The Giallorossi are short of firepower with captain Francesco Totti sidelined through injury, and Podolski reckons they are after him.

"I know Roma are tracking me and would like to sign me," Podolski told Corriere dello Sport.

"I would have no problems in moving there, as they are a big club - although I doubt Romans can speak Kolsch (dialect spoken in Cologne)!"

Cologne have been widely considered as front-runners to clinch Podolski's signature, with the player keen to return to his hometown club.

But he is keeping his options open and would appear to also relish a move to the Eternal City.

"I need to play and cannot keep sitting on the bench," he said. "I am not comfortable staying in Munich any longer and I feel the time has come to leave to return to doing my job (playing).

"I think I'm ready for an experience abroad, including Italy."
