Stoke and Palace keen on Bendtner
12th June 2013 3:10pm BST
Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner is attracting the attention of Premier League clubs, including Stoke City and Crystal Palace.
Stoke and the three promoted clubs, Crystal Palace, Hull City and Cardiff City, are looking into bidding for the services of the striker, according to a SportsDirect News source.
Danish striker Bendtner spent last season on loan at Serie A champions Juventus making just 10 appearances. He is surplus to requirements at the Emirates Stadium and looks set to leave eight years at the club.
Bendtner told Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet: "Arsenal have agreed with five clubs so now it is up to me to make a choice.
"They are all good clubs. It is a hugely important choice I'm faced with. I must go where I am wanted. As a footballer, there is only one thing that can make you happy: playing time."
A SportsDirect News source said: “I know that Stoke City and the three promoted clubs are looking at him”.
Palace are reportedly looking for a big striker to lead the line while they wait for Glen Murray to return from a knee injury he sustained towards the end of last season.
Bendtner has scored 22 Premier League goals in 99 appearances, many of which as a substitute, since joining the club in 2005.
