Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner finally put an end to the speculation surrounding his future after signing for German club Wolfsburg. Bendtner has been a free agent for the last few months, but he has been unable to agree a deal with interested clubs. There have been rumours that the player was demanding excessive wages. This saw the likes of Werder Bremen drop their interest in the player. The entry of Wolfsburg, though, has finally brought an end to the search for a new club after the striker agreed a three-year contract.
Nicklas Bendtner recently brought his nine-year spell at Arsenal to an end after being released by the club following the end of his contract. It has been expected for the last few years that Bendtner would permanently move away from Arsenal after falling out with manager Arsene Wenger. However, he has been unable to find a new club due to several reasons. His poor form, the transfer fee demands of Arsenal, and inability to come to terms with interested parties have been some of those reasons. He is now close to moving to another club on a permanent contract.
Despite being released by the Gunners, Nicklas Bendtner might continue playing in the Premier League as according to some reports, Burnley, one of the three teams which have been promoted to tier 1, is keen to secure the services of the 26 year old striker.
Bendtner spent a total of 9 years at the Emirates stadium, but, he played only 100 odd games in that duration. He never quite became a regular in the Gunners starting XI. Even during the last season, he played only when the team management decided to rest Olivier Giroud, otherwise, he was mostly warming the bench.
So, it didn’t surprise people when Arsenal decided to get rid of the Danish player at the end of the last season. They had hardly any reason to give him a contract extension.
Nicklas Bendtner’s season with Arsenal has been limited to only a few numbers of appearances and after going through Sunderland and Juventus on loan deals but his return to the Premier League club has not made any significant difference towards Arsene Wenger choices of selecting other players in starting lineup.
The Danish attacker’s time at the Emirates Stadium has run up as he expressed his desire to leave Arsenal with the German league turning out to be a likely destination as he revealed details of his next football destination.
Danish club FC Copenhagen have rejected suggestions that they are about to complete the signing of Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner, who is a free transfer in the summer. The striker is now free to negotiate terms with clubs from abroad. There have been speculation that he could seal a return to Danish football in the summer with the likes of Copenhagen interested in him. They are the biggest Danish club and the presence of Champions League football will also be a big draw for the striker. However, they have dismissed those rumours saying that they are untrue.
It has been a significant amount of time since Nicklas Bendtner has played an important role for Arsenal as he only made 1 appearance for the club during the 2011-12 season and later was loaned out to Juventus where things did not get a huge improvement as he was only featured in 9 league matches for the Italian club.
Now that he is back at the Emirates Stadium with Arsenal, he still has not managed to establish himself as a fundamentally vital player for the Premier League club and things have recently gotten even worse for the Danish player as he was involved with a drunken incident in Copenhagen.
AC Milan suffered a 2-0 defeat when they went head to head with Atletico Madrid during the 1st leg of the Champions League but that was not the only downside of the match as Mario Balotelli sustained a shoulder injury that will be leaving him out of action for around 10 days.
Mario Balotelli missed out of Ac.Milan’s Serie A match against Sampdoria but the team of Clarence Seedorf still managed to claim a crucial victory. The former Manchester City player is expected to be back in action for his club’s upcoming match against Juventus.
After their crushing victory by Liverpool last weekend, a humbled Arsenal has brought serious changes the squad order. According to the new arrangement, Nicklas Bendtner has been chosen to lead the club’s revenge war against Liverpool.
After being smitten 5-1 by Reds in the Anfield league encounter, Arsenal labored to a drab goal-less draw result against Man U last Wednesday. No wonder, the team is all set for a solid revenge victory against Liverpool which would not just pacify them but would even push them nearer to their 1st silverware in the long nine years.
The 1st match of 2014 for Arsenal saw them claiming a 2-0 victory over Cardiff City but it came with a bittersweet taste as Nicklas Bendtner picked up and ankle injury that has left him unable to play for his team ever since.
The Danish player has been training with his teammates as he is completing the final stages of his recovery. Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta join the list of injuries that Arsene Wenger has to cope with along with Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud who has been suffering with ankle problems of his own.
“We have just had Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain back, Bendtner back, I hope to have Arteta back next week and Ramsey,” Wenger added. “We also have Yaya Sanogo coming back into the squad next week.”
Nicklas Bendtner, who has largely been on the sidelines at Arsenal in the last few years, provided a telling contribution to the club after scoring the opening goal against Cardiff in the 2-0 win. His goal came in the 88th minute when Arsenal were struggling to find the opening goal.
Dropped points from this match would have given the advantage to the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea, as it is shaping up into a three horse race for the title. After Nicklas Bendtner secured the goal, Theo Walcott added a second for Arsenal to make the game safe for the gunners.
