Swiss champions FC Basle are the latest in a long line of clubs to have expressed an interest in signing unwanted Arsenal front man Nicklas Bendtner this summer, according to reports in the Sunday Mirror.

The lanky Denmark international has been at the Emirates throughout his whole career to date, with the 25-year-old making his debut for the north London club in October 2005.

However, it is fair to say that in the intervening eight-year period Bendtner has failed to win over the Gunners’ faithful, or convince head coach Arsene Wenger of his worth to the team, so much so that the striker has even been shipped out on loan on three separate occasions in the recent past.

Bendtner spent the entire 2006-07 campaign at Birmingham City, scoring 13 goals in 48 games, before then netting eight goals in 30 appearances at Sunderland in the 2011-12 season.

And then again in the previous campaign, the Dane tried his luck with Serie A champions Juventus, but after failing to score a single goal in his 10 outings in Turin,  Bendtner was sent back to Arsenal last summer, where he has been trying to find himself a new club ever since after being told by Wenger that he no longer had a future in north London.

But it appears as though the forward could have now been offered an escape route by Basle, who are expressing an interest in signing Bendtner before the window closes on Sept 2.
