Arsenal could be stuck with striker Nicklas Bendtner for another season at least, with his prospective move to German club Eintracht Frankfurt on the brink of collapsing, according to the Daily Express.
The club’s chairman Heribert Bruchhagen has suggested a transfer for the Danish forward is out of reach, meaning Bendtner will have no choice but to return to the Emirates, despite travelling to Germany on Tuesday to finalise the transfer.
Talks appear to have broken down however, with reports suggesting the striker’s wage demands proved the major stumbling block.
Bruchhagen told German magazine Kicker: “After weighing up all the arguments, Bendtner turned out not to be a realistic prospect.
“Now it’s up to us. There are no problems with Arsenal We have to see if it’s financially viable.”
Bendtner spent last season on loan with Italian giants Juventus, however they decided not to make the deal permanent after the forward managed just nine league appearances and not a single goal.
Also somewhat embarrassingly for the Dane, it was reported the club were unable to shift a single replica shirt that boasted his name and number.
