Wolfsburg striker Nicklas Bendtner could be the next high-profile star to cash in on an offer from the lucrative Chinese Super League, according to The Sun.
The former Arsenal man, who was omitted from Dieter Hecking’s Champions League squad which defeated Gent 3-2 in their first leg tie, has found the net just nine times since arriving in Germany in August 2014.
Bendtner is yet to hit double figures for the Bundesliga side, who are currently eighth in the league table, despite spending more than 1,500 minutes on the pitch in all competitions.

Wayne Rooney is the latest and surely the most sensational of names being linked with a transfer to the Chinese Super League amid reports an anonymous club is prepared to offer Manchester United £27 million for the England forward.
