Nicklas Bendtner has decided to leave Arsenal in the summer, with the 23-year-old confirming he is ‘100 per cent’ sure of his decision.

Bendtner was widely tipped to leave Arsenal, with his father and agent Thomas Bendtner valuing the striker at £11 million. But now Bendtner Jnr has confirmed what most pundits were predicting, and has said that after he completes international duty for Denmark he will look at offers from other clubs.

"I have decided 100% that I must leave Arsenal," Bendtner told

"I've considered this for a long time and was quite clear when I arrived at my decision.


"It doesn't feel particularly strange to not know what my future holds - I'm quite calm and confident that I'll be fine at a new club.

"I'm fully focused on Saturday's game for now, because it is incredibly important, but after the international is over I may focus more directly on my future [but] I am sure I could easily go on holiday without having to panic about it.

“I'm looking to relax, mentally, after a season that was not what I hoped for or expected."

With Arsenal going a sixth season without a trophy, Bendtner is not the only star disappointed with his season. The squad looks set for an overhaul this summer, with Denilson also revealing this has been the worst season he has endured at Arsenal.

"This has been the worst season of my life and I am so upset, so frustrated,” the midfielder said.

"I am a winner and I came here to win trophies but I've been here for five years and won nothing.

"A footballer's career is over very quickly so it is time for me to move on."
