Everton plan loan deal for Arsenal striker

Everton have revealed their interest in striker Nicklas Bendtner and wish to acquire his services on a season-long loan but Arsenal are reluctant to accept the Toffees’ offer as they would rather sell the 23-year-old, according to the Metro.

The Dane was not part of the Gunners squad which travelled to Asia on a preseason tour and he has been told by Arsene Wenger that he is surplus to requirements at the clubs.

Sporting Lisbon, Hamburg and Borussia Dortmund were all interested in the 6ft 5 tall forward but Arsenal’s £12m asking price was deemed too high and their interest faded.

Everton also cannot match the north London club’s valuation of the player because of a lack of transfer funds and have decided to push for bringing Bendtner in on loan and although the Gunners wish to sell Danish international, allowing him to move to Goodison Park on loan may be their only option.
