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.
