EPL: Nicklas Bendtner insists he wants to leave Arsenal

Nicklas Bendtner has admitted he wants to quit Arsenal but remains unsure whether he will leave in January or at the end of the season.

The Danish striker returned to the Emirates in the summer following loan spells at Juventus and Sunderland, but was linked with a permanent transfer to Crystal Palace.

However, the move fell through on transfer deadline day and Bendtner has since made seven appearances for the Gunners this term, but is yet to score for Arsene Wenger’s side.

And having insisted in September 2011 that he would never pull on an Arsenal shirt again, Bendtner has reiterated his desire to quit the Premier League pacesetters.

‘I want to leave Arsenal. If its in the winter we’ll have to wait and see. First priority is a new challenge – Money is second,’ he told Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet.

‘I’ve been playing football since I was four years and back then it was for the love of the sport.’

Olivier Giroud is currently leading the Arsenal line by himself, but the Gunners have been linked with moves for several strikers when the transfer window reopens at the turn of the year.

And it appears an incoming centre forward won’t be the only movement at the Emirates in January.
