OFFICIAL: Bendtner loaned to Juventus

| September 1, 2012 | 12 Comments

It has been confirmed by official website Arsenal.com that big Danish striker Nicklas Bendtner has only joined Juventus on a season-long loan.

It is understood that the Serie A giants reluctantly went for the self proclaimed ‘best striker in the world’ after missing out on their primary targets reported to have been the likes of Robin van Persie, Luis Suarez, Fernando Llorente and Dimitar Berbatov.

The 24 year-old Dane has been considered surplus to requirements following the his fall-out with the club regarding a lack of playing time and subsequently spent last season as a loanee at Sunderland.

As stated on the official website, Juventus have an option to get the striker on a permanent deal at the end of the season, but for now he remains a loanee.

It looks like his quest to find a permanent club continues as it seems no club wishes to meet Arsenal’s valuation for the big Dane, but at least he remains off the wage roll I suppose.

Personally, I feel it is a shame that Bendtner had such a fall-out with club because in Arsenal’s current squad he would have gotten decent game-time this season behind Olivier Giroud, particularly if Giroud failed to fire later in the season.

Speaking on his official twitter account Bendtner tweeted:

I can now finally say I am a Juventus player. Very proud and can’t wait to wear the stripes.

I hope we will have great times together. I want to fulfil my potential here and show the fans my absolute best as that is yet to come. I am sure I will.

What do you guys think? Feel free to leave a comment below or discuss Bendtner in the allArsenal.com forums.

    the book is balanced we sold two player for 40mil and we bought 3 for 42mil

  • EIE

    We need to invade the pitch on our next home game, someone could well give Wenger a thumping right hander, wouldn’t blame them, cunt!

    • i

      i would if i could one thing i cant stand is someone who doesnt stand up for theme selves and wenger doesnt, he came out and said he wanted to sign hazard then the board should have got him simple but they didnt, yet he still doesnt speak out against them

      • realist

        oh what, and go and cause an unharmonious rift up at the top which will only eventually show on the pitch.

        I have admiration for Wenger for biting his lip. If you can apply some foresight to some happenings past and present, you can clearly see he’s making do with what he’s got since David Dean – and making do in a good way.

  • WHL71

    Yep, wouldn’t blame them at all.

  • i

    i definatly think this will be wengers and the boards last year as we are obviously no going to win with this squad

  • Malky

    The board needs to be got rid of, time to rise up and get rid of these parasites!

  • bc

    so there it is, the window closes and we have not even seen the cameras at any arsenal venue. wenger and the board have decided on their 28 man squad for the season.

    even the essien rumour didnt come off

    you see van der weil, berbatov, de jong & dempsey move for a grand total of £18m – 4 players that will have done for us. instead we are going to run with squillaci, chamakh, eastmond & arshavin. dear oh dear!!!

    “We were looking for a top, top
    player, but there was not much
    quality available. There was very
    little movement in the market. Yes,
    we have the money available but
    as well we have to be wise to not
    to waste it. Now that Wilshere is
    coming to his full fitness and Diaby
    is already playing, it is like two new
    signings this year. We have a big
    squad to deal with all challenges
    this year. If something comes up,
    we’ll see.”

    Pure fake!

    may juventus buy this player at the end of season. Not showing any improvements during his loan at sunderland and must be sold as soon as possible.
