Nicholas Bendtner set for Arsenal return?
You may have woken up this morning to see that former Arsenal striker Nicholas Bendtner has been training with his ex teammate Kieran Gibbs ahead of the upcoming season.
The pair have been working on their fitness alongside each other, as well as Leicester’s Danny Simpson. Simpson and Gibbs are training hard ready to be fit for the upcoming pre-season and Gibbs needs to have some major rise in form and ability if he is to displace Arsenal’s Mr Consistent, Nacho Monreal. Bendtner on the other hand is completely without a club, a free agent, after being released last season from Wolfsburg, a year before his contract was due to end.
Bendtner, who is nicknamed ‘Lord’ by football fans across the world, hasn’t had the brightest of careers and it seems to have spiralled out of control even further since he left Arsenal. However considering he is a free agent, is Wenger eyeing him up as a possible new striker? We need one Arsene!!
I am of course joking and this is not a serious rumour because even the thought of seeing old Nicky B pulling on an Arsenal shirt and walking out at the Emirates is a frightening sight. I for one am still annoyed Wenger chose him over Carlos Vela!
