The out-of-favour striker has expressed his frustration over the lack of first-team opportunities this season, and has even threatened to leave the club as a result (we can only hope!).
The 23-year-old, whose current contract doesn’t expire until the summer of 2014, has only managed to start 3 Premier League matches to date, and has netted 9 goals in a total of 30 appearances for the Gunners so far this season.
However, the Dane insists Wenger has no intention of selling him this summer. The forward was quoted in Danish sport publication, Sporten.dk, saying:
‘I have certainly talked to Wenger. But he has not told me that I should look for a new club to play for after the summer or that he is not satisfied with me.’
So it appears Nicklas Bendtner’s future at Arsenal will remain in tact, and that he will be apart of the Gunners set-up next season. Personally, I hope this is not the case, and that the Dane is sent packing by Wenger during the summer in order to make way for new arrivals.
In my opinion, Bendtner is an average striker, and certainly one who shouldn’t be wearing the famous red and white of Arsenal. My fingers will remain crossed in hope that he is not at the club at the start of next season’s campaign, and that Wenger does us all a favour and actually offloads the forward during the summer.
