The Dane is out of contract in North London at the end of the season and will almost certainly not be offered a new one after his unauthorised drunken antics in Copenhagen last week.

The 26-year-old is currently on £52,000-per-week but has told clubs he wants to DOUBLE his salary because he is available on a free.

The Demnark international complained recently of an unfair perception of him in the media, before a widely-publicised drunken altercation with a taxi driver, which led to a two-week fine from Arsenal.

When asked if he would play for Arsenal again, boss Wenger curtly replied: “He is at the end of his contract in the summer.”

Bendtner returned from a disastrous loan spell at Juventus last summer overweight and unfit but, after nearly joining Crystal Palace on deadline day, he was given a chance by Wenger after the Gunners failed to sign another striker in the transfer window.

He has managed two league goals in nine appearances this season, eight of which have come from the bench.
