On-loan Arsenal striker frustrated in Italy

On-loan Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner could soon become frustrated with life at Juventus if he fails to secure a first-team place, according to his agent.

The Danish international swapped Arsenal for the Serie 'A' champions in the summer on a temporary basis, but has so far managed just 24 minutes for the Turin based club.

Upon his arrival in Italy, Juventus coaches initially branded Bendtner overweight, and proscribed a training regime for the forward.

The Arsenal forward made only his second appearance of the season on Tuesday in the Champions League against Nordsjaelland, but Tom Brookes, Bendtner's representative, has said he could be set for talks over his future if he continues to warm the substitutes bench at Juventus.

Quoted on talkSPORT, Brookes said: "He is too strong to sit on the bench and this is not good for him or Juventus. If the situation continues like this, we'll have to do our assessments in the coming weeks."

Arsenal resume their Champions League campaign this evening against Schalke at the Emirates Stadium.

Bendtner moved on from the Gunners after falling down the pecking order following the arrival of France international Olivier Giroud and Germany striker Lukas Podolski.

The Gunners suffered a disappointing defeat away to Norwich in the Premier League on Saturday, and Arsene Wenger will be looking for a response from his Arsenal squad when they take on their German opponents this evening.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere returned to the Gunners squad for the first time in almost 15 months at Carrow Road, but the England international will not feature in the Champions League fixture tonight.
