Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly joined the chase to sign Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner.

The Danish international is thought to be heading for an Emirates exit this summer, with his father confirming that interest has already been shown in the forward who is now being coveted by Spurs.

"Nicklas is 100 per cent open now to a change of clubs," Thomas Bendtner told the Daily Mirror.

"He has made his decision and he has told it to Arsenal. Nicklas needs to be playing from the start so, sadly, he must leave. He wanted to finish the season first, so no-one could say he didn't fight for a first-team place right until the end.

"There is real interest from both English and German clubs, and Bayern Munich were after him, earlier. It's very exciting."


 

Harry Redknapp is known to be in the market for a striker at White Hart Lane, with Robbie Keane and Roman Pavlyuchenko tipped to make exits and Jermain Defoe opening the door to a potential Spurs exits with claims he need to be playing more first team football last week.

The Metro, along with a number of other newspaper sources, claim Tottenham Hotspur are interested in bringing Bendtner across the north London divide, potentially following in the footsteps famous figures such as Sol Campbell.

Newcastle and Sunderland are also thought to be keen on the player, although Bendtner snr ruled Aston Villa out of the running for the 23-year-old.

First team opportunities appear to be the key to a move, and it's unclear if Tottenham Hotspur would be able to offer the player guarantees in relation to this.
