Bendtner looking for Arsenal stay

Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner is not looking for a move away from Arsenal, and the player is focused on getting fit and a future with the London club, his agent has said.

The 26-year-old striker has netted two goals this season in ten appearances, but has only started once in the league this season since being brought back into the fold by manager Arsene Wenger.

And despite recent periods away from the club on loan at Sunderland and then Juventus, his agent Tom Brooks told Danish magazine Tipsbladet that the forward isn’t looking for another move: “You’ve got to ask Arsene Wenger about that. We have not been in touch with Arsenal about it. We might discuss it with Arsenal later in case it is necessary.

“Nicklas is focused on Arsenal and regaining his fitness.”

Bendtner damaged his ankle on New Year’s Day against Cardiff City, and is expected to be back in training this week. Reports that Wenger had earmarked Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic as a potential replacement for Bendtner have also been played down by the Gunners boss.
