Arsenal's Lukas Podolski Plays Head Tennis with a Sea Lion

Sean SwabyUK Staff WriterMay 7, 2014

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."
