Niklas Bendtner eyes Spain move in January

It’s looking likely that the Danish striker is going to leave the Gunners in the new year after disappointing in the few chances he’s been afforded this season as Olivier Giroud’s only recognised back-up forward.

Bendtner had agreed to join Crystal Palace in the summer, but Arsene Wenger pulled the plug on the deal after failing to sign a player as a replacement, while previous moves away from the Emirates have fallen through due to the 25-year-old’s wage demands.

However, the confident Dane has seemingly set his sights high for his next club.

Asked if he chased the money when trying to find a new club,Bendtner told Danish publication Politiken: “I do not. It is the sport that is the most important.

“I’m going somewhere where I know I can be happy to play. With a team where I can score goals and preferably to win something.

“I do not want to sit on the bench staring. I love playing lots of games.”

When asked how he envisaged his career would continue, the striker said: “Real Madrid or Barcelona.”
