Forward says move to White Hart Lane is possibility.

Nicklas Bendtner says he would not rule out a move to Tottenham Hotspur if he has to leave Arsenal on a permanent basis next summer.

The Danish striker is currently on a season-long loan at Juventus,but has struggled to make an impression with the Italian champions.

Bendtner spent last term on loan at Sunderland and reports suggest the 24-year-old will be sold by Arsenal at the end of the season.

He admits he would be happy to stay in London and would not discount the prospect of emulating the likes of William Gallas andEmmanuel Adebayor, who have played for Arsenal and Spurs in recent years.

“History is filled with examples of players moving between rival clubs and I can’t rule out clubs due to where I might have been in the past,” Bendtner told

“It might not be the best idea but if the project matches my ambitions I would have to be interested.”

He added: “I still have a great relationship with London, which is a city that I adore.

“I have a lot of friends in London and there are a lot of great clubs in London, so I wouldn’t rule out a return.”


Just days after Tottenham and Arsenal fiercely contested the North London derby, on-loan Gunners striker Nicklas Bendtner has refused to rule out a move to Spurs.

The striker is currently on a season-long stay at Serie A giants Juventus and, after arriving in Turin unfit and overweight, has struggled to make an impact in Italy.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger surprised fans by admitting in September that Bendtner may still have a future at the Emirates, insisting that the Denmark international is still learning the game. If that does prove the case, the 24-year-old will hardly have endeared himself to Arsenal’s faithful with these comments.

It is also questionable whether Spurs would want to misfiring forward. The North Londoners may be struggling under Andre Villas-Boas but they still boast Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor up-front and, while another striking option is probably required, it would have to be a young player willing to do time on the bench, rather than a full-international wanting game time.
