Emirates boss wants striker to remain in North London.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is confident striker Nicklas Bendtner will remain at the club after they discuss a new contract in the summer.
The 23-year-old has endured a frustrating season following the fine form of Robin van Persie and the arrival of Marouane Chamakh.
The Denmark international has only started three Premier League games this season but has scored 10 goals in 34 appearances.
His lack of first-team opportunities has disappointed the Dane, alerting clubs such as Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United.
Wenger understands Bendtner’s frustrations and the pair will sit down in the summer to discuss his future.
“I will sit down with Nicklas at the end of the season to see how he feels,” said the manager. “I hope he will stay.
“I completely agree that he did not get enough chances – it was a very difficult season for him. He must be frustrated and I am as well because I feel he was not involved enough.
“That is part of the competition as well but we will see where we go from here at the end of the season.”
