After a very successful Euro 2012 campaign, everybody was expecting Arsenal’s second string striker Nicklas Bendtner to be on his way from the London side, especially given the fact that in the last season and a half he hasn’t been getting virtually any time on the pitch.
Linked with the likes of Juventus, Galatasaray and AC Milan, Bendtner was looking to be one of the first transfers Arsenal was going to make, but for some reason that didn’t happen.
The striker’s agent stated right after the Euros that Nicklas is a hot asset on the transfer market, but it seems that all attempts to bring the Danish star have grown to a halt, as the striker is still with Arsenal now with only a couple of days left before the transfer window closes shut, blocking his way out of the Emirates.
If newspapers have it right, Bendtner is ready to go for a mere fee of £5million, and Juventus or AC Milan are still highly interested in bringing him abroad. The Milanese lost Ibrahimovic and are looking to revamp the squad after a poor start of the season in which they lost the Italian Superleague and the first match of the season, so Nicklas might be heading to Italy soon. Do you think that Wenger should try to keep him given Arsenal’s goalless debut?
