Lanky forward will be out of contract at the Emirates at the end of June.
A quarter of Premier League clubs are said to be lining up to sign out-of-favour Arsenal front man Nicklas Bendtner for next season, according to reports in the Sun.
The misfiring Denmark international’s current deal with the north London club comes to an end at the start of July and with the Gunners having not surprisingly declined to offer Bendtner a contract extension to remain at the Emirates next season, the striker is now available to pick up on a lucrative free transfer for any interested suitors this summer.
And it is now understood that the likes of newly promoted Premier League duo Leicester City and Burnley, as well as two sides who won promotion to the top flight this time last year, Crystal Palace and Hull City, are all interested in landing the player for next season, with the Tigers said to be leading the chase for Bendtner’s signature.
Bendtner, 26, managed to register just the two goals and one assist in total in his 14 matches in all competitions for Arsene Wenger’s side in the previous campaign.
