Is Bendtner’s time at Arsenal finally up after Wenger hints at summer exit?


Fulham are reportedly another club in the hunt for out-of-favour Arsenal forward Nicklas Bendtner this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

Mark Hughes is thought to be on the look out for two strikers this summer and also considered a loan move for the Denmark international during the winter window, but the Gunners decided against the proposed move.

However, the 23-year-old front-man is eager to play more regular football and would consider offers this summer. Everton, Blackburn, Hamburg and Bayern Munich are all said to be interested in the striker’s services.

The clubs interested in Bendtner, who has netted 8 goals in 30 appearances this season for the Gunners, certainly have a chance of acquiring his signature during the summer after Arsene Wenger recently admitted that his future remains uncertain at Arsenal.

The Frenchman will sit down with Bendtner at the end of the season to discuss his future, and should the striker decide to call time on his Arsenal career this summer, then Wenger would completely understand:

‘I will sit down with Nicklas at the end of the season to see how he feels.’

‘I completely agree that he did not get enough chances, it was a very difficult season for him.’

‘He must be frustrated and I am as well because I feel he was not involved enough.’

I personally wouldn’t be sad to see Bendtner leavethe club this summer. To be honest, I would love for Arsenal to sell the Dane and use the cash generated from the sale (along with our reported £40 million summer funds) to acquire a prolific striker to partner Robin van Persie, who I see as a second striker rather than a pure one.

    unless we get some good offers, i would probably loan him. he is a decent squad player and i dont think his time at arsenal is over just yet..

    i agree that Arsenal could use another good striker to replace him, with RvP and Chamakh (who will most definately improve next year) we will have a very strong front-line.

    Sell him, end of. He thinks he is best thing since slice bread, but he is absolutely useless. Sell him and bring in a proper striker to help Van Persie. We are over reliant on him scoring goals, we need someone to help him out and take the pressure of Van Persie.

  • realistic tony says:

    in his defense, he has been played wide right and at stoke, wide left. He is a good crosser of a ball, but would prefer to see him on the end of crosses rather than walcott!.i think he should leave, its time to be ruthless and ship out the deadwood(at least 6 players). We need a fresh set of players with some brits included to add steel spirit and strength.
