Nicklas Bendtner: Set to leave Arsenal
Nicklas Bendtner has confirmed that there are 'serious' negotiations ongoing over his departure from Arsenal.
The striker has made it clear he does not see his future with the club, whilst Arsene Wenger and Arsenal have confirmed he does not figure in their plans.
Now the 24-year-old Denmark international is closing on his departure - with clubs in Italy, Spain, France and Germany all linked.
AC Milan are reportedly favourites, but Bendtner did not reveal who he was in talks with.
"It is not an option to stay at Arsenal, that is something neither I nor Arsenal desire," Bendtner told the Danish media.
"I am expecting that the club issue will be resolved before the transfer window is closed. There are serious negotiations going on."
The striker admitted that he already has rejected some offers, adding: "Yes, I have.
"From the start, I had three requirements. In case they are not fulfilled, I have rejected them since they are not interesting at this point."
Whilst Milan are favourites, Italian agent Francesco Di Frisco, who is one of those helping to move Bendtner, confirmed Inter Milan could also be an option.
"AC Milan and Inter on Bendtner? He may be a good alternative for the Nerazzurri's attack, we will see," he told Calciomercato.
