Bayern Munich step up chase for Bendtner


Written by Chris Wheatley

Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich have made tentative enquiries over the potential transfer of Nicklas Bendtner this week, with the Danish frontman earlier admitting that his future lies away from Arsenal.

The 23-year-old’s position at the club has looked increasingly uncertain due to Robin van Persie’s goalscoring spree and the arrival of Moroccan frontman Marouane Chamakh over the summer.

Bendtner’s agent, who told reporters this week that he is is ‘100 per cent open now to a change of clubs’, said yesterday that Copenhagen-born forward would prefer to join a club who will be playing Champions League football next season.

“Our main criteria is playing, playing, playing. But the club [that Bendtner signs for] should also be participating in the Champions League because we believe that Nicklas has the qualities to play in the tournament,” said his father and representative, Thomas Bendtner.

Bayern have made no secret of their admiration for long-term target Bendtner. Franz Beckenbauer stated in November that he ‘has all the qualities’ to play for Die Roten.

A decision on Bendtner’s whereabouts is expected in the coming weeks, with several other European clubs monitoring his situation.

I very seriously doubt Bayern will move for Bendtner. They have Gomez as lead striker,then the return of Olic and they have just signed Peterson. If Klose leaves, they will make use of Muller too, they play a 4-2-3-1.

If he does leave, then he will play on the wing again if Robben gets injured.

I still think Arsenal have given Bendtner a raw deal, he is an ace player.

@GoonerDEU: Bayern know that they can get Bendtner for less than his market price now. He’s said he wants to leave and Arsenal don’t usually keep unhappy players.

For me, Germany seems a very likely destination for Bendtner. Can’t see him joining another English club as none of the top 3 sides will be interested.

If we could get 10 million for Bendtner we could easily put another 10 million to that and sign Benzema but the problem is Arsene will probably try nab him on the last day of the window when another club has already come in, that is if he makes a bid at all. We must replace Bendtner with better quality though

@Gooner Chris: Not sure Bayern really care about his value, they will have spent on Neuer, and at least 2 defenders plus Peterson (nearly €40m). if they are looking at €10m for Bendtner,they will maybe look to get Cissé from Freiburg for less than that. In Germany, can’t see Dortmund buying him, neither Leverkusen, so maybe somewhere like HSV that is the ideal place for a player like him, looking to reach the next level. Lets see if Bayern really move for him, personally, I doubt they will, their new coach Heynckes plays with 1 striker all the time, Gomez-Olic-Muller-Klose-Peterson… Read more »

@stu:

I can forgive him that miss,it never defined our season, the defenders and midfielders defined our season, and if Chamakh stays, then selling Bendtner is a backward step, Bendtner has much more to his game than Chamakh, what use having a striker that does not shoot???

@GoonerDEU: Some good points there. Enquiries are made about different players all the time, so whether an actual move comes to fruition is another story.

With the news just coming in that Nasri is going to MAN UTD, Arshavin as good as gone, BENDY might be needed.

Bendtner can be replaced. But he’s totally wasted at the flank for the past 2 seasons. I bet he’ll get us 20 goals a season had Wenger played him up front in a 4-4-2 formation. Not to mention we don’t have decent crosses into the box to allow Bendtner and Chamakh to capitalise on their height and heading abilities.

@GoonerDEU: Right on the money mate! Bendtner is a better striker than Chamakh, Chamakh has no killer instinct. My dream move within possible limits is: Chamakh and Bendtner out and Benzema and Rodellega in. But I still would prefer Bendtner over Chamakh.

Both Bendtner and Chamakh should be nowhere near Arsenal. Simply put, they lack the quality required in top 4. I won’t even go into Bendtner’s first touch or Chamakh’s apparent inability to strike a ball with his feet.
