Wolfsburg have signed Denmark international and former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner on a three-year-contract, The Guardian reports.

Wolfsburg have been in the market all summer for a new striker with the likes of Alvaro Morata, Mario Mandzukic and Edin Dzeko all linked with the Bundesliga club, but in the end Wolfsburg ended their search by signing Bendtner on a free transfer.

“We want to play a good role in all three competitions this season, and to do this we need players who already know what this kind of challenge is all about. Nicklas embodies precisely the kind of striker we were looking for. He fits the profile and is going to strengthen our squad," Wolfsburg coach Dieter Hecking said.

Bendtner came through Arsenal's youth system and made it into the first team in 2005. He was loaned out to Birmingham City on a season-long-loan and scored 11 goals in 45 appearances for the Midlands club.

He was loaned out to Sunderland for the 2011/12 Premier League season, where he scored eight  goals in 28 appearances for the Black Cats.

During the next season he was loaned out to Serie A giants Juventus on transfer deadline day but failed to find the target once in the nine games he played for the Old Lady.
