German football superpower Bayern Munich might not hold the rights of Germany international striker Lukas Podolski anymore, but the Bavarian side is the one that is in line to make a significant profit if the former Bayern man is sold to English Premier League club at the end of the season by his current club Koln.

Podolski has long been linked with Arsenal as manager Arsene Wenger believes him to be the perfect foil for Dutch striker Robin Van Persie and it seems that he has already agreed terms to join the North London side at the end of the season, although no agreement has been reached between the two clubs.

According to German tabloid, the Bavarian giants Bayern Munich had inserted a 10% sell on clause in the contractual agreement that saw the striker return to the club that he joined Bayern from almost three years back. And it now seems that it was one of the easiest pieces of business that was done by the board of directors at Bayern.

Bayern sold Podolski because he struggled to get into the team, and they haven't missed him too much with mario Gomez netting 5 goals in the latest European tie, against all in-play Champions League odds!

Podolski is currently in the form of his life and is one of the most sought after strikers in Europe with many clubs looking to secure his signature during the summer transfer window and this has almost doubled his value in the last twelve months with Koln refusing to listen to offers lower than € 20 million for the 27 year old striker.

This means that Bayern Munich stand to gain € 2 million and the cash strapped club could do a lot of business in developing the youngsters with this amount of money.

But the way things are heating up at the moment, it is highly probable that a bidding war takes place for the player, which only means more profit for the 4 time European champions.
