Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has spoken out and clamed he will leave the North London club if he is not given more games.

Talking to, he claimed that he is desperate to become the starting striker in Arsene Wenger's squad in the near future. However, if the Denmark international is unsuccessful in his quest then he may have to look else where, for the sake of his career.

"It is quite clear that my priority is to play football fast," he explained. "I know what I want and, if it doesn't happen at Arsenal, then I will move away from the club — so I'm guaranteed to have the whole remainder of my career playing, wherever I am. I want to play solid."

The 20-year-old admits that he has not yet made up his mind whether a transfer is the best action for his career, and that his first priority is to force himself into the Arsenal starting squad.

Bendtner explained to that he still sees his future at the Emirates club:

"I am not even across all the rumours because I am an Arsenal player and appreciate the club very much," he said. "I hope I can be here for a long time yet. For me, Arsenal, right now, are a dream club."

Despite Bendtner's lack of first team play with the Gunners, Arsene Wenger has consistently explained that he views the young striker as part of his long-term plans and would be reluctant to let the striker go.

Internazionale, Spartak Moscow and Bayern Munich have all been linked with Nicklas, although nothing will be finalised until later on in the season.
