After speculation which suggested Lazio were interested in taking Nicklas Bendtner on loan, the Dane’s agent has played down any talk of him moving in January.
TGSTEL has recovered from his ankle injury and could well play against Coventry in the FA Cup on Friday night. His agent, Tom Brooks, told the Danish press that he was unaware of any interest in the player, and that his focus was purely on Arsenal.
“You’ve got to ask Arsene Wenger about that,” said Brooks.
“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.”
Even if Arsenal do make a January move, it seems likely that Arsene Wenger will hold on to Bendtner until the summer. Indeed, with his contract expiring, he’ll have a much better choice of clubs at that point, and Arsenal would prefer to have the security of a deeper squad as the race for the title hots up.
