Tigers are desperate to add more firepower to their attack in the north east next season.
Newly promoted Premier League outfit Hull City are still interested in signing unwanted Arsenal front man Nicklas Bendtner this summer, according to reports in the Sunday Mirror.
The Tigers head coach Steve Bruce knows that he desperately needs to bring in more reinforcements to beef up his attack at the KC stadium next season in order to give the minnows the best possible chance of staying in the top flight.
And as a result, the former Manchester United captain has been keeping close tabs on the misfiring Gunners striker all summer long, with a view to possibly bringing the Denmark international to the north east next season.
However, as yet Bruce has been unable to come to an agreement with Bendtner over his personal terms, with the 25-year-old’s current wage demands understood to be out of reach of the Tigers boss.
But Bruce is believed to still be hopeful of managing to persuade the lanky forward to swap the Emirates for the KC this summer after Bendtner was told by Gunners manager Arsene Wenger that he would be surplus to requirements in north London next season following 45 goals in 157 appearances for the club in the past eight years in the capital.
