Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner is set to make his first Arsenal appearance since 2011 against West Brom in Wednesday's Capital One Cup encounter.
In an email newsletter to fans, Arsene Wenger said:
"We have a Capital One Cup game at West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday and I will rotate the team, of course. Nicklas Bendtner has a chance to be involved."
Given that Olivier Giroud has played every Premier League and Champions League game for Arsenal this season - and the injury to Arsenal new signing Yaya Sanogo - Bendtner will be vying for a starting position against young English striker Chuba Akpom.
Nicklas Bendtner returned to the Arsenal first team this season after two successive loan spells at Sunderland and Juventus. He has 22 Premier League goals for Arsenal since 2005, but hasn't scored for them in over 1000 days.
Denmark coach Morten Olson has told Danish newspaper Jyllands Posten that Bendtner will not return to his international side unless he can make some more appearances for Arsenal:
"We have been aware that his physical fitness has been there for a long time, but he must play matches again.
"At the same time he must be aware that he must prove that he is good enough for this team."
The out-of-favour striker had been criticised for his attitude and off-field antics in recent years, featuring in many media scandals and being pictured allegedly drinking and smoking in nightclubs.
At Euro 2012 Bendtner was fined €100,000 by UEFA for unveiling underpants sponsored by betting company Paddy Power after scoring against Portugal. He was also suspended for Denmark's next World Cup qualifying match.
Arsenal travel to The Hawthorns at the top of the Premier League table, with a club-record of 10 consecutive away wins dating back to their 2-0 win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League last season.
