Arsenal outcast set for Emirates departure

Brought to you by William Hill


Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has revealed that he expects to leave the club within a fortnight after holding talks with five-or-six different clubs.

The Danish striker has spent the season on-loan in Italy with champions Juventus and this summer he is seeking a move away from the Emirate permanently.

Before joining Juventus on-loan, Bendtner also spent time on-loan at Premier League side Sunderland, but it looks likely that the striker will move abroad.

The 25-year-old hasn't made a first-team appearance for his parent club since August 2011, but he hasn't been able to secure a permanent move away from the club, despite knowing that he is not wanted by Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

The striker wasn't a first-team option for Juventus and was mainly used as a substitute so a permanent move to them doesn't look likely, however the player himself has confirmed that several clubs have spoken to him about a possible move this summer.

Bendtner revealed that everything has been agreed with Arsenal for him to leave the club and now it's up to him where he goes.

He has also admitted that five-or-six clubs are interested in signing him.

Bendtner told The Metro: "I am talking with five or six clubs at the moment over a permanent transfer. 

"Things are agreed with Arsenal and I will decide which club I sign for in the next two weeks."

Bendtner has scored 43 goals in 157 appearances for Arsenal but was never seen as the permament first-team striker and he finally wants to end his career at the north London club.

It is being suggested that teams in; Turkey, Holland, France, Germany and Portugal have all shown interest in the 25-year-old striker.
