Three clubs from around Europe are battling to sign Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner before the transfer window closes next month, according to the Daily Mail.
Turkish side Trabzonspor have joined Swiss outfit Basel and Spanish club Malaga in the race to sign the Denmark international who has had a torrid time at the Emirates in recent years.
The 25 year has been rotting in the reserves or farmed out on loan to try and find some sort of form that can earn him a place in the Gunners’ first team but nothing has worked so far.
Premier League pair Hull City and Sunderland were both openly keen on taking the striker north, but hefty wages and baggage appear to have ended their interests with a move abroad now the best bet for Bendtner.
Arsenal reportedly only want £2million for the flopped striker who last played for the North London side over two years ago.
Arsene Wenger wants to get the well paid forward off of his wage bill in order to bring another striker in with Wayne Rooney and Luis Suarez at the top of the list.
Malaga remain favourites to snap up Bendtner who would be happy to try his hand in La Liga after winning the league title with Juventus in Italy last season.
Bendtner has always believed in his own ability to become one of the best players in the world, but the striker is yet to show even a glimmer of that and so a fresh start and less boasting is required.
