Want-away Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner could be set to end his north London misery in January with a number of clubs queuing up for his signature.

As reported by the Metro, Stoke, Sunderland, Hull and Crystal Palace have all expressed an interest in signing the Denmark international.

The 25-year-old openly expressed his desire to leave the Emirates during the summer transfer window after falling out of favour with manager Arsene Wenger.

Bendtner has been loaned out for the past two years, scoring eight times for Sunderland during the 2011/12 campaign.

But this summer he returned from a disappointing spell at Juventus, during which appearances were limited and he failed to score a single goal.

Following his return to North London Bendtner has started two Capital One Cup matches for the Gunners but was widely criticised for a performance in the 2-0 defeat to Chelsea.

Wenger had put his faith in the Dane before the match, but it appears his patience is running out after he posed very little threat against the Blues.

Olivier Giroud has cemented his position as Arsenal’s first choice centre forward this season having scored seven goals and provided four assists in 11 starts in all competitions.

Bar an injury to the Frenchman, Bendtner’s chances of making a comeback are looking slimmer by the day.

And with Arsenal rumoured to be in the market for a new striker in January to ease the pressure on Giroud, the Dane could be making a swift exit.

Arsene Wenger failed in a bid to sign Demba Ba on transfer deadline day in September, and also missed out on Gonzalo Higuain after a high profile pursuit ended with the Argentina international joining Napoli from Real Madrid.
