Danish striker prepared to join a ‘lesser club’ to play.
Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner looks set to become the latest player to head for the exit at the club after having five bids accepted from unnamed sides, according to the Mirror.
Arsene Wenger has already began to overhaul his squad this summer with the likes of Denilson, Andriy Arshavin and Sebastien Squillaci all being told that they won’t be earning new contracts at the end of the month and the big Dane is set to follow suit and finally move on after last playing for the Gunners in 2011.
Bendtner has attracted some significant interest, with I’ve clubs bidding for his services for a fee of around £3 million being mooted.
“Arsenal have agreed with five clubs so now it is up to me to make a choice. I will make that choice within the next 14 days,” he said.
“They are all good clubs. It is a hugely important choice I’m faced with. I must go where I am wanted. As a footballer, there is only one thing that can make you happy: playing time.”
The striker has spent the past two seasons on loan with Sunderland and Juventus, and whilst he rejected the chance to move to Hamburg in January because he felt they were too small, he has now admitted to reconsidering his stance.
“Will it be good for me to go to a big club where I risk the bench? No, I’d rather go somewhere where the club is located just below the top where I can play every week.
“I can take a step back to take three forward.”
