Bendtner has only scored two league goals this season.

Nicklas Bendtner could make Premier League return with Crystal Palace interested

Published 1 Comments

Arsenal flop Nicklas Bendtner could be returning to the Premier League during this transfer window, according to the Daily Mail.

The Dane spent seven seasons at the Emirates, scoring 47 goals in 171 appearances, and could be set for a return to England with Crystal Palace interested.

Palace manager Alan Pardew has spoken about signing a ‘big’ player during the January transfer window and mentioned the Wolfsburg striker along with another former Gunner.

“Well, there is Adebayor and a couple of others that have been mentioned,” Pardew admitted.

“We’re still going down the line of a couple more that have come to light.

“Bendtner is available. He’s someone else we are looking at. Someone who can fit into our group and give us a lift, a big player coming in,” the former Newcastle manager added.

Bendtner has only scored twice in the Bundesliga this season and is currently struggling to cement a regular first-team slot.

Since leaving the Emirates, the striker has spent two years at Wolfsburg but has failed to make an impact in Germany.


Last season, he managed five goals in 28 appearances and has fallen out of favour at the Volkswagen Arena during this campaign.

Arsenal fans will no doubt have some very fond, and not so fond, memories of the 28-year-old and would welcome him back in the Premier League - as long as it’s not for Arsene Wenger’s men.

However, Gunners will always remember Bendtner’s first Premier League goal - the winner against north London rivals Tottenham, 1.8 seconds after coming on as a sub.
