Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has revealed that he expects to have surgery this week.
Bendtner has been hampered by a groin problem in recent weeks.
The Danish international is now set to go under the knife on Tueseday, with the hope it will cure his injury.
"I will have an examination on Tuesday and then go on to have surgery on Wednesday," Bendtner told Ekstrabladet.
Bendtner does not know how long the surgery will keep him sidelined for.
