He is without a doubt a quality player and Wenger sends the Gunners out to play both tactically and technically similarly to how Low sends out the nationalmannschaft to play.
But Podolski has always been a player who seems to play better for Germany than he does for any of his club teams. So by 'make it' what do you mean? Will he finally start playing as just as well for his club team? I don't know but he doesn't have to. He was never bad just not as good IMO.
I think he will be fine but even if he ends up needing an extended adjustment period I'm not going to be concerned. He's been getting into good positions and linking up with his teammates decently well for a new signing early in the season. Sure he had a few chances in earlier games to get a goal and didn't take them but I'm sure few remember van Persie's first couple seasons in Arsenal colors let alone first few games.
