Sporting Libson are understood to be in talks with Arsenal over striker Nicklas Bendtner.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger last week revealed the 23-year-old had been given permission to miss the friendly against Cologne and training camp in Germany "to sort out his future".
Bendtner, pushed further down the pecking order following the £11million
arrival of Ivory Coast forward Gervinho, was photographed in Portugal and is expected to push through the formalities of his move over the weekend.
With Bendtner's departure set to follow that of long-serving defender Gael
Clichy, Wenger is likely to quickly reinvest those transfer funds, which could
be boosted by a further £4million should Emmanuel Eboue join Galatasaray.
Valencia's Juan Mata and Everton's Phil Jagielka remain high on Wenger's radar.
