Arsenal duo Nicklas Bendtner and Gervinho are targets for Turkish clubs Besiktas and Fenerbache, respectively, according to the Daily Mail.

Bendtner is almost certain to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer after spending the last couple of seasons on unsuccessful loan spells with Sunderland and Juventus.

The 25-year-old Dane has been linked with several Bundesliga clubs, as well as Premier League side Stoke City, as Arsenal look to raise some funds for summer signings by selling unwanted squad players.

Gervinho could also fall into that category, after a disappointing couple of seasons with the Gunners. The former Lille forward has only scored ten goals in his two seasons in North London. He has been linked with a loan move to Lyon, though he could leave permanently if a decent offer comes in from Fenerbache.

Fellow Turks Galatasaray seemed willing to offer £12million for the Ivorian, though their interest has dropped in recent months, as they seek bigger moves for the likes of Dimitar Berbatov and John Terry.

Arsenal will be hoping to bring in a couple of attacking players as replacements this summer, being linked with the likes of Fiorentina’s Stevan Jovetic and Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain.
