The Journal claims that Newcastle have been ‘offered’ Nicklas Bendtner from Arsenal, with the striker eager to leave the London club before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.
Bendtner had been connected with a move to Stoke, but the 23-year-old literally laughed off suggestions that he might be making a move to Britannia Stadium.
"I can't say anything about who I have been speaking to. But hopefully it will all get sorted out soon,” Bendtner said.
But while Bendtner turned down the rumours of a deal with Stoke, he hasn’t made a comment about moving to Newcastle, and now, according to the local paper, Arsenal have told the north-eastern club that they can make a purchase if they want.
Bendnter has been valued by his agent at €11 million, with Thomas Bendtner telling reporters recently: “One hundred million crowns [approx €11million].
"He has been valued higher before. But of course, if you are on the bench the price goes down.
"Nicklas has the qualities to live up to this sum and we can certainly find a club that is willing to pay."
Arsenal will be looking to cash in on Bendtner, who has made his intentions to leave the Gunners very clear, and Newcastle certainly have the funds to cover the Dutchman’s transfer fee.
And with Newcastle desperate to find a striker over the next few weeks, Arsenal and Bendtner look set to both get what they want and part ways.
