Arsenal might face serious problems if their only prolific goal scorer gets subject to an injury; hence they need another prolific goal scorer upfront. Arsenal have been in race for such a player, the proof of which is the two month chase by Arsene Wenger for a world class goal scorer but eventually losing out on Higuain and Suarez both after bidding a considerably large amount of transfer sum.
The Dane has somehow managed to remain on Arsenal’s books despite spending nearly two years away on loan spells at Sunderland and then Juventus last season.
Following a couple of collapsed transfers dealings which could have seen Bendtner’s exit and the arrival of a new striker, the Gunners chose to stick with the Copenhagen-born man as he made his return to action in last Wednesday’s League Cup triumph over West Bromwich Albion.
But The Dane who now is giving his all to win back the hearts of Arsenal fanbase said in an interview, “In the whole transfer window situation, no one denied the fact that I was trying to leave. The boss also said they (the club) were happy to let me go. Then a lot of things happened, a lot things turned upside down and in football you can never say ‘never’, so I ended up being here”
After this statement will the Arsenal fanbase forgive the striker or not? Only time will tell.
