Asked whether he intended to persist with Podolski at Loftus Road, Wenger told the club website: "At the moment, yes.
"A definite decision has not been made but if there is an opportunity then there is a good chance I will do it. "He has the qualities because he is a good finisher. He has a good technique, and because we have a game based on very quick combinations I believe he can be a part of that.
"Overall I am convinced in the coming games he will show it."
Arsenal only have one match this week, but against QPR, who were absolutely dire last week, there could be two matches worth of points available to Podolski. A brave fantasy manager might consider it.
