Arsenal forward Nicklas Bendtner has given the strongest hint yet he may be on his way out of Emirates Stadium in the summer. Bendtner has scored just two league goals this season, with manager Arsene Wenger often preferring Dutchman Robin van Persie or Moroccan Marouane Chamakh up front.
Many of Bendtner’s 16 appearances for the Gunners in the Premiership have been on the right wing and the talented 23-year-old said he plans to sit down with Wenger in the summer and discuss his future.
“I need to have a talk with him [Wenger] because I’m not satisfied as well,” Bendtner said. “I’m not satisfied with playing on the right wing which I’ve done more or less all season long.”
Bendtner signed a new long-term deal with Arsenal in 2009, but Wenger recently hinted that there may be some player movement at the North London club in the off-season.
While Wenger has already said that he wishes to keep Bendtner at Arsenal, the Dane indicated he is becoming increasingly frustrated with his role.
“I’m concentrating on getting the Champions League place and then we’ll do the evaluation at the end of the season;” Bendtner said.
“It’s certainly not the best thing for me but it’s not up to oneself and sometimes you have to adapt to what the manager says.”
