Arsene Wenger maintains when young Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner is fully focused he can be a "handful for any defence in the world".
Bendtner scored 15 goals from a total of 50 appearances last season in all competitions, often coming from the bench as an impact player and Wenger has no intentions of letting any of his current squad leave, and the club are close to finalising a new contract for leading scorer Robin van Persie.
"Nicklas has made big improvements since the start of the season. He has become an important player for this club," Wenger said in the July edition of the official Arsenal magazine. "When Nicklas is really switched on and focused, he is a handful for any defence in the world."
He added: "He has shown that in the second part of the season.
"People forget how young he is, but I am sure he has won many people over in the second half of the season."
