Milan, Italy (SportsNetwork.com) - Inter Milan confirmed on Monday that forward Lukas Podolski has joined the club on loan from Arsenal for the remainder of the season.

The 29-year-old trained with Inter on Monday after completing the move and he could find himself on the bench when the club meets defending champions Juventus on Tuesday.

Podolski secured a move to Arsenal in 2012 from Cologne, but he has failed to appear in a league match for the Gunners this term.

A Germany international, Podolski was a member of the 2014 World Cup winning side for the Germans, while he also won the FA Cup with Arsenal last season.

Inter sits in 11th place in Serie A, six points adrift of a spot in the Champions League.
