Bendtner's Ultimatum

Bendtner's Ultimatum

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.

Not sure that he's ready for Arsenal's first team yet, so he probably should be loaned out. If Wenger rejected a loan move, it probably means he wants him in the first team, or at least to evaluate him in the preseason to see if he can make the step up. Seems a simple matter of Bendtner needing to meet with Wenger and hash things out.

he hasn't been given a first team squad number but neither has Larsson, Gilbert or Lupoli all of whom played for the first team last season.

We should try and hang on to him. AW should loan him out to a respectable team where he will get 1st team appearances. But if he does go we have got another striker on his way in the near future in Carlos Vela, so no need to worry, i'm sure AW knows what he's doing..
