The Danish centre forward has a respectable goal return for his country but has struggled to find a club where he can play and find the net regularly over the years.
At Arsenal the Scandinavian attacker was seen as something of a joke figure, with Bendtner failing to live up to his billing despite having a considerably high opinion of himself.
The Dane was introduced as a substitute for Ivan Perisic in Wolfsburg’s latest fixture, with the back-up forward slotting home an equaliser from close range in the 83rd minute to help last year’s Bundesliga runners-up avoid their first defeat of the new campaign.
Wolfsburg have opted for Dutch striker Bas Dost as their first-choice number nine for the last six months, with Bendtner only getting five Bundesliga starts last season, scoring just one goal in the process.
However, the 27-year-old will hope for more prolonged time on the pitch for the Volkswagen Arena outfit in 2015-16, with the former Arsenal man starting the new campaign in positive fashion.
