There are rumours today that Nicklas Bendtner’s Italian disaster could be over very soon with Juventus apparently keen on sending the striker back to London. The move comes after a drink driving incident which saw the player fined £97,000 and has had his driving license revoked for three years.
Bendtner has also been suspended from the Danish side for six months too. So basically he could be kicking his heels for a while.
The self-professed best striker in the world is clearly supping at last chance saloon. Come the end of the season he will leave Arsenal and at the moment it seems like it won’t be a big club that secures his services.
So maybe, just maybe, there could be a role to play at Arsenal. The Gunners’ bench is pretty skinny on attacking options and a few seasons back Bendtner came on as a sub many times and either scored or helped create goals and chances.
Bendtner needs to play well to keep himself in the shop window. Arsenal need a striker to take the pressure off Giroud and The Dane clearly has plenty of Premiership experience.
Sometimes saying sorry can be very hard – but in this instance it could suit both parties and have a happy ending.
Would you give Nick one last chance?
