Malaga weighing up Arsenal bid
Nicklas Bendtner looks set to have a number of options whilst choosing a new club this summer, with Malaga and Galatasaray monitoring the forward’s situation at Arsenal according to The Daily Mail.
The Denmark international impressed for his nation in Euro 2012, scoring a brace against Portugal, despite Morten Olsen’s men being eliminated from Group B.
After spending a year on loan at Sunderland the Scandinavian forward is back at the Emirates Stadium, but is not part of Arsene Wenger’s plans after the summer signings of Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud.
With Bendtner looing for a new club, Champions League participants for 2012-13 Malaga are thought to have identified him as an option in bolstering their attack.
Turkish giants Galatasaray are also thought to be interested, and the player’s agent has revealed that the interest after the Euro 2012 championships has been substantial.
“The interest is overwhelming, just as it should be after the way Nicklas performed at Euro 2012,” Bendtner’s representative Jesper Lynghus has confirmed.
