Lukas Podolski plays with two of the better playmakers on the planet in Santi Cazorla and Mesut Ozil, so he's no stranger to receiving fine passes.
This, though, is a new one even for the veteran German.
Podolski, visiting a zoo in his hometown of Cologne, was spotted playing head tennis with a sea lion—and the sea lion was good!
He even jokingly posted on Instagram with a photo alongside his new head-tennis friend: "That's the new transfer target. Currently he's a big star in Cologne but we'll see whether we can make him a Gunner."
