Wolves weigh up late move for ex-Arsenal 47-goal striker – report

By Joe Nelson

Wolves are the latest side to show interest in former Arsenal hitman Nicklas Bendtner, according to a report.

Danish publication Ekstrabladet claims that the club from the Midlands are pondering a move for the Danish 28-year-old before the transfer window shuts on Wednesday.

Bendtner, who is now a free agent, was released from his contract with German side Wolfsburg in April, despite having over a year of his contract left.

Championship rivals QPR had lined up a move for the Dane, but no movement has materialised since the reported initial interest.

The Denmark international moved to the Bundesliga in 2014 after his contract with the Gunners expired, but now could be set for a return to English football.

Bendtner scored 47 goals and supplied 22 assists in 171 appearances for Arsenal and added a further nine goals in 47 matches for Wolfsburg.

Bendtner, who has scored 29 goals in 73 matches for his country, has also had loan spells at Sunderland, Birmingham and Juventus.

This move could represent the chance for the striker to get his career back on track, working under Walter Zenga at Molineux.

Wolves have taken eight points from their opening five games of the Championship season, and sit ninth in the table, just ahead of local rivals Birmingham.

Their next game comes at home to Burton Albion on 10 September after the international break.

In other Wolves transfer news, the midlands side have submitted a late-window bid for this prolific 27-year-old.
