Giant Dane now appears on the verge of moving to La Liga next season.
Liga outfit Malaga are the latest club to have expressed an interest in signing unwanted Arsenal front man Nicklas Bendtner this summer, according to reports in The Times.
The misfiring Denmark international had appeared to be on the verge of moving to Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt earlier this month, only for the 25-year-old’s proposed transfer to collapse over the striker’s excessive wage demands.
However, it now looks as though Bendtner will instead be joining mega-rich Malaga next season, with the Dane reportedly in talks with the Liga club on Monday night of a move to the Spanish coast.
And as part of any possible deal for the Dane, Malaga are understood to be willing to offer the north London club defender Jesus Gamez in part exchange.
The 28-year-old right back has been with Malaga for his whole career, making his debut for the club eight years ago and since then the Spaniard has featured in 238 matches, scoring just the one goal in the process.
Meanwhile Bendtner, who also played his first game for the Gunners in 2005, is now expected to complete his move to Malaga by the end of the week and so bring down the curtain on a frustrating eight-year career at the Emirates, during which time the forward has netted just 45 goals in his 157 games for the club.
