Bendtner waiting for ‘concrete’ offer

According to his father, Nicklas Bendtner has yet to be the subject of any formal bids despite interest from all of Europe’s ‘big leagues’.

The Danish international, who spoke publically about his desire to quit Arsenal last month, is thought to have been approached by Bundesliga champions Borussia Dortmund and Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon, however, with time on his side it appears he is willing to hold on as long as possible with a view to assessing all potential offers.

Premier League duo Blackburn Rovers and Bolton Wanderers have been tipped as possible destinations, while Italian sides Inter Milan and AC Milan are also long-standing admirers.

The 23-year-old will return to pre-season with the Gunners next week, although it remains to be seen whether he travels on the club’s pre-season tour of the Far East.

Speaking to Sporten.tv2.dk Thomas Bendtner revealed:

“There has been interest from all the big leagues, but there is nothing concrete yet.

“The window is open for a long time.”

Much maligned by sections of the Arsenal fan base, Bendtner nevertheless has a decent goalscoring record. From 40 Premier League starts he has a total of 22 goals, and an overall Arsenal tally of 43 despite missing large portions of the last two seasons through injury and playing many games out of position.

A natural centre-forward he found himself forced wide due to the form of Robin van Persie, although his best goalscoring period came when given a run of games in the middle.

On paper he has a decent record, but he has a terrible habit of opening his mouth before a big game and then not producing the goods. Barcelona anyone?

This is it. I dont see why the side can’t play with 2 in th middle. Anyway we are looking worryingly thin. Possible departures- Nasri, Cesc, Bendtner, Arshavan. Plus we still need new defenders including at least 2 new CBs and a LB. Don’t forget we need to sign another GK. There is a lot of shopping that needs to be done. Signing 11 new faces is a real possibility. Question is if they will be any good.

22 goals from 40 looks attractive but compare goals against chances and you will understand why there is no concrete offer todate.Auvoir Nick!

How can we continue to lose top players every season, whenever we’re finishing each season with no silverware, yet the likes of United and Chelsea will win the league, hold on to their talent, and strengthen their squad.

Things aren’t adding up.

I’d swap Bendtner for some concrete. Fair swap, innit?

Again, my nickname says it all.

Maybe we should Arshavin in the center and see how it goes. IMO Bendtner shouldn’t be playing on the wings, he is an out and out striker. It beggars belief that Arsene can’t see this.

Bendtner waiting for concrete offer.

Is this a new sponsorship deal he’s after for his boots?

Gnasher

Good luck fella. Great positional sense as a player, but, a roulette of a boot scoring foot for a front man. We needed more consistency from you after you promised great things….Next!

I actually rate this guy, had his fair share of bad luck and being played out of position, but he will never be anything more than a squad player. and even then, i still think we need a higher quality of player to provide competition to the first team. would do great at a team pushing for europe.

although is anyone else starting to get a little concerned that we’re going to struggle to shift our deadwood this summer? the likes of Bendtner, Denilson and friends don’t seem to be finding many suitors…

Arkanoid

Bendtner please go! Perhaps Blackburn might sign you once the mansion deal is done…
Wenger has to buy… Last year proved fact that we need leadership on the pitch, viera nor Henry have been properly replaced.

Arkanoid

On a by note it’s funny the mp for spurs ward says their is high enemployment there … Spurs trophy cleaner earned £6 last year , perhaps bendtner could take over his position?

dave button

Not good enough, too slow, good riddance to him an anyone that don’t want to play for the Arsenal

Chocolatemonk

It’s true that Nick can be very frustrating, but he also is played out of position so often, I know if he goes, he will end up being a class striker somewhere else

vox in Oz

Bendtner’s always been Arsenal’s Heskey… 1st touch like a schoolboy with two broken ankles and vision impaired. I have literally broken a TV when he’s come on as sub! Now i read that we are sniffing John OShea…. this better be media spit or we may aswell shop in from division 1!! this summer speculaion is driving me insane!!

Vishal024

He’s got talent, he has the perseverance but he just has this incredibly annoying nack for ruining the match for us. Like when he blocked Fabregas’ shot a few seasons back against Liverpool (that goal could’ve sent us to the semis) or flufflng that opporitunity against Barca. He can’t be excused anymore, I’m hoping we offload him to a league where he can hit his height like the Bundesliga.
