Whilst Arsenal have just completed the signing of new striker Gervinho from Lille, Bendtner’s time at Arsenal is up. The Danish striker had said that he wants to leave Arsenal and Wenger has granted him his wish. It looked like no one was interested in signing Bendtner but the striker returned to pre-season training but was not on the plane to the Far east with the rest of the squad.
Wenger spoke today at the press conference about Bendtner and subsequently the future of goalkeeper Manuel Almunia who is also not on the tour.
“Both of them are possible departures,” confirmed Wenger. “They are talking to other clubs at the moment. I cannot tell you which ones.”
It is thought that Bendtner is headed to Borussia Dortmund or Sporting Lisbon whilst Aluminia could be off to a club in Spain.
In my opinion, both players will not be missed.
