There´s a disturbing report in Bild in Germany today that Newcastle United want to sign former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner,
At the end of the article, in which they say the Danish striker looks a little overweight and not in the best of shape after the winter break, they suggest that Bendtner´s departure from Wolfsburg may be imminent.
Nicklas Bendtner – Wolfsburg striker
His agent Marco Ivan Benes has been looking for a new club for Bendtner for weeks now and since everybody seems to be aware that Newcastle need a new striker brought in this month, Newcastle are the club mentioned as a likely destination.
But they say no agreement has been reaches between the two clubs but that Nicklas would be interested at the chance of joining Newcastle and playing again in the Premier League.
Bendtner joined Wolfsburg on a three-year deal in the summer of 2014, so his deal in Germany still has 18 months to run.
But we´d be very surprised if Newcastle have any interest in the former Arsenal striker, who seems well past his best these days and his attitude is also suspect.
He has played 44 times for Wolfsburg over the last eighteen months and scored 9 goals,
We don´t think Bendtner is the answer to Newcastle´s problems and he´s also not an easy player to manage.
The 72 times capped Danish striker (29 goals) turns 28 this Saturday.
