Denmark striker Bendtner confirms his wish to leave Arsenal

Nicklas Bendtner is definitely looking for a new club as he seeks to end his Arsenal frustration, according to Sky Sports.

Crystal Palace seemed close to signing the 25-year-old in the summer, but the deal fell through and Bendtner returned to Arsenal.

Having spent two seasons away on loan – first at Sunderland and then at Juventus – Bendtner is keen to continue his flagging career away from the north Londoners, where he has struggled to win over the fans with his intermittent displays, receiving only sporadic first team opportunities after dropping behind Olivier Giroud in the pecking order.

Bendtner is keen to seek new horizons, ideally in the January transfer window, and insists that football is what drives his career rather than money.

While on international duty with Denmark, Bendtner told reporters: “I want to get away from Arsenal. Whether it is in the winter, we must wait and see. I will make my decision depending on where the greatest sporting challenge lies. Finances, in this context, mean very little to me.

“I’ve been playing football since I was four years old and back then it was for the love of the sport. It is for the love of the sport that I play today as well.”

His national coach, Morten Olsen, has become the latest in the list of footballing personalities urging Bendtner to leave the club, after the striker initially refused to answer questions pertaining to his club future while trying to concentrate on his duties with Denmark.
