Nicklas Bendtner has again hinted he could leave Arsenal, and Lazio are ready to offer him an escape route from north London.
The Denmark striker, who has been reduced to a bit-part role with the Gunners this term, is a loan target for the Serie A side.
And with Robin van Persie, Marouane Chamakh and Andrey Arshavin all ahead of Bendtner in the strikers’ pecking order at Arsenal, the 23-year-old admitted he may have to look elsewhere for first-team football.
He said: ‘At the end of the season we can see where I am, see where the team is and how well we have done.’
Lazio, however, are short on firepower and want to take Bendtner to Rome for the remainder of this season, according to Corriere dello Sport. (Daily Mail)
This may well be a move that suits all parties. Arsene Wenger and Nicklas Bendtner have apparently had something of a falling out over comments the Dane made in reference to his lack of first team opportunities, a move that only made the 23 year old even less likely to get the starts he so badly wants and needs.
Last season the lanky striker managed just 13 Premier League starts but this term things have gotten even worse with the bench warmer still not having been named in the first eleven for a league match, this is mainly due to the success of new signing Marouane Chamakh and perhaps now is the time Bendtner looked for a new club.
Lazio are doing very well this term with the Rome club just three points from top spot and many supporters and pundits have been talking up the club’s chances of their first Serie A crown in 10 years but they could well do with more options up front as scoring goals is still a bit of a problem for the Stadio Olimpico side who have managed just 24 goals in 17 matches thus far.
A successful loan move would pave the way for a permanent deal with the £8m rated Arsenal man presumably very interested in moving to Italy to reignite his career.
