The search for a club for Nicklas Bendtner goes on, as Malaga are the latest club to be linked with the Danish striker. He has previously been linked to Eintracht Frankfurt, but the move fell through due to Bendtner’s massive wage demands.
Malaga is in need of a striker, and The Times reports, that it is Bendtner whom they want to lead their front line next season. It is also reported that Malaga are interested in a swap deal involving Bendtner and Malaga club captain Jesus Gamez, who has been at Malaga for the past decade, and has 3 years left on his contract. It is unknown whether the deal will be a straight swap, or will involve money exchanging hands. Gamez, who plays as a right back, and is 28 years of age, might be the full back Arsenal needs to replace the aging Bacary Sagna, or probably to play in Sagna’s position so as to enable Sagna make a permanent switch to the centre of defence. Gamez has played more than 200 games for Malaga, and started his professional career with Malaga’s B team. He has been played 4 times for the Spanish Under-23s.
Nicklas Bendtner has been told by Arsenal that he is free to leave, and said in June, that he has five or six clubs to choose from, and he would make the choice in a couple of weeks, but that choice hasn’t been made yet. He was on loan at the Serie A champions, Juventus, where he performed badly and scored no goal.
