Wenger wants Podolski to stay and says Inter Milan are joking.

Arsene Wenger brushes off interest from Inter Milan for his German attacker and hopes the World Cup winner stays at the Emirates.

The Arsenal boss reckons Inter Milan's interest in Lukas Podolski is a joke, though reports say the Serie A club are planning to land Podolski in January 2015.

Podolski who hasn’t gotten enough games under his belt this season is opened to leave in the January transfer window and Wenger wants him to stay despite not giving the German a start in the Premier League this season.

'I want and hope he stays,' says Wenger. 'That is a joke. Inter Milan is not serious.'
