Report: Ex Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner attracting transfer interest

Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner is attracting transfer interest but wants to stay at Wolfsburg.

Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner is man in demand, according to German magazine Kicker.

They report Danish side FC Copenhagen are interested in signing him this summer.

While the interest would no doubt be flattering to the striker, Bendtner is reported to be resisting their advances as he wants to stay in Wolfsburg.

Bendtner signed with Wolfsburg last summer on a free transfer, and he can't be blamed for choosing to stay with the German side.

While catching Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga is a near impossible task, Wolfsburg are closest, just 10 points off Pep Guardiola's side.

They are also into the Europa League quarter-finals, defeating Inter Milan in the last 16.

Bendtner has played only a slim role, making one Europa League start, and four Bundesliga starts this season. He has four goals to his name, but there have also been 17 appearances as a substitute.

Wolfsburg are ambitious and likely to spend this summer to try and close the gap. Bendtner could find himself pushed out, although it may depend on whether they manage to hang onto top scorer Bas Dost.

Given the way he clung onto his Arsenal career until the last moment, he won't be pushed out of Wolfsburg before he is ready.
