Nicklas Bendtner believes he is in the best shape of his career and puts it down to the training at current club Juventus being more intensive than at Arsenal, ESPN has reported.

Bendtner is on loan at Juventus from the Gunners and has only made one appearance for the Serie A champions so far this season, but insists he is ready for action when called upon thanks to the level of training at the club.

The Denmark international added that even without playing regularly he feels he is in the best condition of his career. Bendtner said: “At Juventus, the training has been different to - and much harder than - anything I've done before. Because of that, my form is at a peak. I'm much sharper. Without playing, I'm down to fighting weight and that's never happened before.

Bendtner scored for Denmark against Bulgaria on Friday, helping the Scandinavians to a 1-1 draw with their eastern European opposition, and is in line to play Italy on Tuesday in the latest round of World Cup qualification fixtures.

There are eight Juventus players in the Italy squad for the match, which will be played at the San Siro, including goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, defenders Giorgio Chiellini, Andrea Barzagli and Leonardo Bonucci, midfield trio Andrea Pirlo, Claudio Marchisio and Emanuele Giaccherini, and forward Sebastian Giovinco.
