Nicklas Bendtner looks set to join Denilson on his way out of Arsenal Football Club, after his agent (who is his dad) made claims that Nicky is “100% open to a move”.

Bendtner has struggled to secure a starting berth at Arsenal, this year could have been his year, but the early season form of Chamakh, the sensational Robin van Persie upon his return, and Wenger`s insistence on playing him out wide (AW actually said last week we don`t need any wingers as we have Nasri, Arshavin, Walcott and Bendtner, yes NB52 is a winger now, not surprising he wants to leave) meant he was nothing more than bench fodder.

‘Nicklas is 100 per cent open now to a change of clubs,’ Thomas Bendtner said in the Daily Mirror.

‘He has made his decision and he has told it to Arsenal. Nicklas needs to be playing from the start so, sadly, he must leave. He wanted to finish the season first, so no-one could say he didn’t fight for a first-team place right until the end.’

‘There is real interest from both English and German clubs, and Bayern Munich were after him, earlier, but talk about Aston Villa is rubbish. He has not met anyone from there.’

Much like Arsene Wenger, the Gooner opinion polls on Bendtner are split, I`d say the slight majority lean towards wanting NB to leave, but there are a good portion of Arsenal fans, like myself, who think Nicklas is a great player, and played in his position is a dangerous asset and an excellent squad player.

It will be a great shame to lose him, because I think he`s got a lot to offer. Good luck Nick.
