The Metro reports that Arsenal’s under performing striker Nicklas Bendtner could finally be on his way out of the Emirates in January, just six months before his contract expires at the end of the season. The 25 year old Danish centre forward has been looking for a new club for the last couple of seasons but his attempts have turned out to be futile. He was close to moving this summer when Premier League newbies Crystal Palace agreed terms with Arsenal before deadline day but Arsenal’s failure to recruit a back up forward for Olivier Giroud meant that Bendtner had to stay on at the Emirates.
It is being reported that Stoke City, Hull City, Sunderland and Crystal Palace, all of whom tried to sign Bendtner in the summer could be back for a second bite at the cherry. While Arsenal are determined to let go of the striker after his below par performances in the limited chances he has been given this season, Bendtner’s lofty wage demands are likely to continue to be a stumbling block. Moreover, should the Danish international not get offered the wage he demands, he might look to see out his spell at Arsenal through to the end of the season before finding a new club as a free agent next summer.
