With Loic Remy not coming back after his loan expired Newcastle are looking to fill a massive gap at forward this summer and Nicklas Bendtner may be part of the solution.
Nicklas Bendtner never lived up to his billing (or his opinion of himself) at Arsenal but with Newcastle in dire need of striking options with Loic Remy gone and Papiss Cisse both injured and in poor form when healthy he could be part of the solution for next season. The former Sunderland loanee has been linked to the Magpies in an article in The Journal today. The Dane is out of contract and if personal terms are reasonable he could represent a solid risk for a club in need of goals. Mon, Jun 2, 2014 02:06:00 PM

Arsene Wenger has passed Nicklas Bendtner fit for Arsenal's Friday FA Cup match with Coventry City.

With the news that Bendtner is fit, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him start against lower league opposition while Wenger rests Olivier Giroud ahead of more challenging fixtures coming up. The manager will be thrilled to have another traditional target forward available for substitute appearances in the Premier League in hopes that the big Dane can build on match-winning goals against Cardiff City and Hull City. Regardless of his production in cup matches and from the substitute's bench, he is no threat to take significant first team minutes from a healthy Olivier Giroud.

Nicklas Bendtner won't make it back in time for the visit of Fulham in Week 22 but Arsene Wenger indicated that he's likely to be available for Week 23 against Southampton.

The absence of Nicklas Bendtner sounded alarm bells about Arsenal's depth at forward but it appears likely that he will return before any alternative is brought into the club via transfer. What was originally thought to be a six week injury looks like it may end up being closer to three weeks. While Bendtner isn't a legitimate competitor to Olivier Giroud for the starting spot, he has provided valuable goals in extremely limited action so far this season. His faster-than-expected return will give Arsenal the option of resting Giroud for matches against weaker competition.

Nicklas Bendtner was the hero for Arsenal late against Cardiff City but he was injured in the process and will now be out for up to six weeks.

Bendtner has been directly responsible for two wins over the last month for Arsenal but in scoring the decisive goal against Cardiff City the big forward injured his ankle. The injury will keep him out until approximately mid-February. With Olivier Giroud also ailing with an illness and an ankle injury of his own, Arsenal's gap at forward is particularly pronounced as the transfer window opens. With Arsenal firmly in contention for the league title Bendtner's injury and Lukas Podolski's poor turn as Giroud's back-up will likely increase the intensity of the need to bring in another forward.

Nicklas Bendtner may not be a favorite among Arsenal supporters but he has two match-winning goals to his credit with the second coming late on New Years Day against Cardiff.

The big Dane hasn't played many minutes this season but he has made a serious impact with late winners against two of the three newly promoted clubs. In early December Bendtner scored against Hull City to save Arsenal blushes and gain them two important points at the Emirates. Today, to kick off 2014, Bendtner converted a rebound for another late winner at the Emirates that saw Arsenal stay top of the table. Theo Walcott sealed the win with an insurance goal in stoppage time as well.

Nicklas Bendtner hasn't seen much of the field this season but he got a start and the match-winning goal for Arsenal against Hull at the Emirates.

With Arsenal facing a daunting week of fixtures - Everton, at Napoli and at Manchester City - starting this coming weekend some rest was in order for key starters including Olivier Giroud. Nicklas Bendtner started in the Frenchman's place and scored a goal within two minutes of kickoff to justify Arsene Wenger's faith in him. Neither the goal nor Theo Walcott's introduction as a central forward upon Bendtner's departure likely signals a change in Arsenal's need for a forward in January but it does provide some hope that Arsenal can deploy alternative line-ups against some of the lesser teams in the league and still win - a departure from recent seasons.

Crystal Palace are in talks to sign Nicklas Bendtner and have agreed fees for Jimmy Kebe and Jack Hunt, according to Sky Sports.

So Ian Holloway looks to finalise his transfer window business with another striker, midfielder and defender. Bendtner may have his doubters but he would be an excellent signing for any of the promoted clubs and along with Kebe, would bring some much needed experience to the Palace squad. Less is know about Jack Hunt, but the Huddersfield full-back is highly-rated and would help add some steal to a leaky defence.

The big Dane's rumored £3 million move to Frankfurt may be off after the forward's wage demands proved a stumbling block.

Arsenal would surely love to see Bendtner gone and if they can get a fee in return, all the better. I'd imagine most supporters, psychologists and financial analysts would tell the Gunners that it might be worth it to donate some or all of the proposed fee to making up the difference in wages between Frankfurt and Bendtner to make sure that the rest of Bendtner's wages are off the books at the Emirates.
