Arsenal reject Nicklas Bendtner has admitted that he is desperate to leave the club as soon as possible, according to 101greatgoals.
The Danish striker has failed to make the grade at the Emirates and, despite being sent out on loan on a number of occasions, has never really looked comfortable playing at the highest level in the Premier League.
Bendtner is currently the second choice striker for Arsene Wenger, but isn't considered a challenger for Olivier Giroud's position and, with Arsenal set to spend big on getting another goalscorer in the January transfer window, he finds himself surplus to requirements.
There have numerous reports linking the forward with an exit, and now the 25-year-old himself has confirmed that he is looking to part ways with the Gunners.
Whilst away on international duty with Denmark he told reporters: "I want to leave Arsenal. If its in the winter [transfer window] we’ll have to wait and see. First priority is a new challenge – Money is second.”
“I’ve been playing football since I was four years and back then it was for the love of the sport.”
His statement is unlikely to come as a surprise to most Arsenal fans, who were expecting to see him shipped in the summer. It remains to be seen however whether or not another Premier League club will take a gamble on him, or if he'll opt to move abroad to seek pastures new.
