Gunners forward hints at exit

Published Add your comment

Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has dropped the strongest hint yet that he is ready to move away from north-London.

The Danish striker has seen his opportunities limited since the signing of Marouane Chamakh and the impressive form of Robin van Persie and, when fit, Theo Walcott.

And those limited opportunities is frustrating Bendtner.

"It is incredibly frustrating not being seen as a first-team player, but there is not much I can do about it," he said.

"I have proven that I am good enough to play from the start at Arsenal.


"Van Persie is ahead of me at the moment and there is nothing to say about that because he has scored 16 goals since the New Year."

It was rumoured that Blackburn Rovers were coming in for the Gunners man and rumours even linked the forward with a move to Germany.

Chamakh's early impact at the Emirates, and Van Persie's form since the New Year means Arsenal are likely to offload the striker, who has rarely endeared himself to the home crowd with his inconsistent form.

It is still unknown whether Arsenal will invest heavily this summer, with Arsene Wenger infamously unwilling to spend big money in the summer window.
