Nicklas Bendnter hasn't had the best time at Arsenal for one reason or another, but he seemed to be on his way out and on his way to Germany with Eintracht Frankfurt claiming to be in 'final talks' with the Dane.
However, since then, Frankfurt have ended their interest after failing to agree personal terms. This is probably due to Bendtner not willing to take a pay cut from what he currently earns.
Bendtner made a name for himself when he went out on loan to championship side Birmingham in the 2006/07 season helping them to promotion, but when he returned to Arsenal he wasn't able to live up to the hype. He made 157 appearances scoring 45 goals - not a bad scoring record, but it has to be acknowledged many of these appearances were either from the subs bench after the team were cruising, or against weaker opposition in cup competitions.
Bendnter has always been considered baggage by many Arsenal supporters who believe he isn't good enough to be playing for such a top club and also that with him on the books, there's less money to offer other players in terms of wages.
Never being in the fans favour, supporters must have been looking forward to getting rid of Bendtner and after two full seasons out on loan at Sunderland and then surprisingly Juventus, it seemed he was ready to walk through the exit doors. But he never dazzled people at Sunderland, and after only 10 appearances for the Italian giants, he clearly wasn't staying in Turin.
The Danish striker always seems to find bad press too, whether it be from his below par performances, his drunk driving arrest in early March while at Juventus, or being thrown out of a club with his trousers round his ankles back in 2009 after Manchester United dumped Arsenal out of the Champions League.
It seems as though, with one year left on his contract, Bendtner may be happy to warm the bench at Arsenal (if he's lucky), take his presumably generous wages each week - and leave next summer on a free transfer.
