Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner is just 48-hours away from signing for German side Eintracht Frankfurt, according to the Bundesliga club.
The Danish striker is currently in Germany holding final talks with the club and their officials and an announcement is expected to be made within the next two days on whether or not the two can come to an agreement over a potential summer move.
Bendtner has never been able to materialise into a first-team player at Arsenal and has spent two loan spells away from the Emirates Stadium with Sunderland and Juventus respectively, but neither of those sides wanted to make the loan move permanent.
It has now been nearly two years since Bendtner appeared in an Arsenal shirt and he revealed after he joined Sunderland on loan that he would never wear the red of Arsenal again and it now looks like his wish is coming true.
The Bundesliga outfit has been monitoring Bendtner's situation after it was originally revealed that over seven different club were talking to the Dane, but it now looks like Frankfurt is his preferred destination with a deal looking set to be complete.
It was suggested that Spanish side Malaga were going to make a big for Bendtner, but nothing materialised and the German side have now made a statement revealing that advanced talks are being held currently.
An Eintracht statement read: "On the initiative of the Danish player Nicklas Bendtner and his advisors, final talks have been held today on Tuesday 9, 2013 in Frankfurt between the striker and Eintracht Frankfurt.
"Sports director Bruno Hubner is in close contact with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, and the final decision regarding Bendtner should be taken in the next two days."
Arsene Wenger is adamant on selling several players this summer so that he can free up some of the wage bill. Sebastien Squillaci, Andrey Arshavin and Denilson are amongst some of the first team to leave the club already this summer.
