Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky has urged team mate Nicklas Bendtner to stay at the club despite reported interest from German giants Bayern Munich.
The Danish striker has found first team opportunities hard to come by recently thanks to the form of Marouane Chamakh and Robin van Persie but Rosicky believes he still has a big future at the club.
Bendtner has been on the receiving end of stick throughout his career with Arsenal and questions have often been raised over his ability to perform for the Gunners.
And, with a limited number of first team opportunities so far this season, Bayern have spoken of their interest in bringing the 22-year-old to the Allianz Arena.
But Rosicky reckons his team mate should stay with Arsenal and that he can become integral to the Gunners’ future success.
The Czech ace said: “Of course I believe he has a future at the club. I don't quite understand the question because he has been injured for a while, but obviously he has to be patient as Chamakh's playing well at the moment.”
"It's difficult, because there's always competition for places at a club like Arsenal. We have three good strikers in Nicklas Bendtner, Robin van Persie and Chamakh. That's a good thing for the club, but obviously it is difficult for the players.”
Arsene Wenger has played Bendtner just thrice this season, once in the League Cup, preferring new signing Marouane Chamakh, who has five goals in 13 games for the Gunners.
