The Rumour

AC Milan are preparing a bid for Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner.

Tuttosport says Milan are turning to the Dane after being frustrated in their pursuit of Sevilla ace Luis Fabiano.

Milan already have held transfer talks with Arsenal this summer over Emmanuel Adebayor, before his move to Manchester City, and are now ready to reopen the lines of communication for Bendtner.

The Analysis

Whilst it’s true that Nicklas Bendtner showed a marked improvement as last season wore on It seems a little unlikely that AC Milan would consider the young Danishman as a candidate to lead their attack. His current position at Arsenal as back-up for the first choice front-men suits him well and has helped him to develop into a pretty decent Premier League marksman who can definitely improve but I don’t see him as being ready to lead the line for a Serie A contender.

What’s more Arsene Wenger is clearly a very big fan and doesn’t show any signs of wanting to offload the tall forward, he supported the 21 year old when he became the attention of the club’s boo boys when he wasn’t at the top of his game.

The Likelihood

Bendtner to AC Milan: Not very likely
