‘Bendtner’s Arsenal exit is inevitable’, says Danish football expert
Nicklas Bendtner won’t be at Arsenal next season regardless of how many goals he scores in the current campaign, according to Danish football expert Morten Bruun.
The 25-year-old was expected to leave in September after two failed loan spells with Sunderland and Juventus but ended up staying at Emirates Stadium due to the Gunners lack of options upfront.
Former Danish player turned pundit Bruun believes that the frontman will depart north London when his contract expires next June.
“He should be commended for taking his chance when he gets it”, Bruun told Danish daily Sporten.
“Recent events [injuries] have brought him back to the fold [for Arsenal], but I’m sure he’s only on borrowed time.
“Bendtner will not be at Arsenal next season no matter how well he does.”
Bendtner’s two season absence from the Arsenal team ended last month when he assisted one and scored in the penalty shoot-out triumph over West Brom.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is currently short on striking options with Yaya Sanogo (back), Lukas Podolski (hamstring) and Theo Walcott (abdominal) all ruled out of action for the next few weeks.
