Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has rejected speculation that the club could be about to sign Germany international Lukas Podolski from Cologne.
The Gunners are in need of a back-up to first-choice striker Robin van Persie as Marouane Chamakh and Gervinho are absent in January as they attended the African Cup of Nations. However, with Park Chu-Young the only recognised striker in the first-team squad, Wenger is not looking to bring anyone else in.
Podolski, who could cost as much as £15 million, has 18 months left on his contract at Cologne and is ready to leave after the club's failure to challenge for Europe. But Wenger told a press conference that he was not in for the 26-year-old.
Meanwhile, South Korean captain Park maintains he is ready to take his chance whenever he can.
"All my team mates are great players," Park told Arsenal Player. "I do not expect a chance for me because a player is unavailable. I will do my best to prepare myself to take any random chances at any time.
"I am new to this club and to the Premier League. I am trying hard to learn more and more. I don't worry about getting used to everything or anything. My team-mates are nice to me and I do not have any problems at all regarding training."
