Hamburg are keen on taking out-of-favour Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner on loan at the end of the season, according to TalkSPORT.

The Danish international is currently on loan at Juventus, but failed to score in his first nine games for the club before getting injured in December.

With the Turin outfit unlikely to move to make the deal permanent in the summer Hamburg could be his next destination, with TalkSPORT reporting that the German club will try to secure a loan agreement with Arsenal for next season.

The website claims Hamburg were interested in landed Bendtner last summer before he opted to join Juventus until the end of the season.

The striker's future at Arsenal looks uncertain, especially given that the Gunners are expected to splash the cash this summer in order to help them regain their status as one of the Premier League's leading clubs.

Despite having confidence in his own ability, Bendtner has failed to impress at the Emirates stadium since joining from FC Copenhagen in 2005, and had loan spells with Birmingham and Sunderland before being shipped out to Italy.

The news comes after a bad week for Bendtner; the Arsenal striker was banned from playing for Denmark for six months by the Danish FA after he was arrested and banned for drink-driving, while it emerged that Juventus are yet to sell a single replica shirt bearing his name.
