Nicklas Bendtner's agent, who is also his dad, has told that Bendtner must start to break in to the first team squad this season or he will look for other alternatives.
Bendtner, 18, has formed a formidible partnership with fellow reserve player, Arturo Lupoli over the past year or so in the reserves, but now he and his father feel it's time to take the next step.
'We are anxiously waiting to see the squad,' the player's agent Thomas Bendtner said to BT.
'It is very important for Nicklas, but one thing is certain and that is that he will play first team football this season.
'In case he is not in the squad, we will look at other alternatives.'
What he doesn't say whether or not one of the alternatives is a loan spell.
