Niklas Bendtner’s exit from Arsenal will finally be confirmed within the next fortnight.
The Danish forward said he was in talks with five or six clubs over a permanent transfer. The 25-year old had fallen out of favour at the Emirates after impressing while on loan at Birmingham City, despite trying for a move away; he could only secure loan moves to Sunderland and Juventus respectively.
He made over 150 appearances for Arsenal, scoring 45 goals but his arrogance was always better than his ability and he soon thought he was better than Arsenal however he could only get a temporary move to Sunderland on transfer deadline day. He did manage eight goals in 30 appearances but that was not enough to merit a permanent move and had to wait until transfer deadline day again before moving to Juventus on loan.
His move to Juventus saw him at one of Europe’s biggest clubs but he failed to make a big impact, making on 10 appearances in all competitions, failing to score but still winning the Scudetto.
His international career has always been good scoring 22 goals in 55 appearances and continues to be one of the nations best players alongside Cristian Eriksen and Daniel Agger.
He has insisted he will never play for Arsenal again but this year it seems as if he is finally getting the permanent move away from the club he has been hoping for the past couple of years.
His departure added with the exits or Denilson, Seb Squillaci and Andrey Arshavin along with the expected departures of Lukasz Fabianski, Johan Djourou, Andre Santos, Park Chu-Young, Marouane Chamakh and Gervinho will give Arsenal a lot of space in their squad for new arrivals while adding money to the transfer budget and slashing the wage budget significantly.
