Wolfsburg striker Nicklas Bendtner could be the next high-profile star to cash in on an offer from the lucrative Chinese Super League, according to The Sun.

The former Arsenal man, who was omitted from Dieter Hecking’s Champions League squad which defeated Gent 3-2 in their first leg tie, has found the net just nine times since arriving in Germany in August 2014.

Bendtner is yet to hit double figures for the Bundesliga side, who are currently eighth in the league table, despite spending more than 1,500 minutes on the pitch in all competitions.

Most of his involvement has come from substitute appearances, having started only 11 matches since penning a deal with the Volkswagen-owned club at the beginning of last season.

However, his modest performances haven’t deterred an unnamed Chinese club from registering their interest in the Denmark international.

Should Bendtner opt to end his two-year stint at Wolfsburg in favour of joining the Far East exodus, he would join a growing list of high-profile names who’ve recently been lured away from Europe in pursuit of stunningly lucrative contracts.

The winter transfer window has seen the likes of Jackson Martinez, Ramires, Alex Teixeira, Obafemi Martins and Ezequiel Lavezzi jump ship while still in top physical condition, with the latter of the quintet said to be earning a jaw-dropping £400,000-per-week at Heibei China Fortune.

Wayne Rooney is the latest and surely the most sensational of names being linked with a transfer to the Chinese Super League amid reports an anonymous club is prepared to offer Manchester United £27 million for the England forward.
