Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner is keen to hear from Stoke City.

The Daily Mail says Stoke's prime centre-forward target Peter Crouch, of Tottenham, is cool on the prospect of moving to the Brit.

Bendtner may prove a more viable option for Pulis, after the Arsenal target man accepted he will have to leave the Emirates to kick-start his career and privately admitted an interest in leading Stoke's attack.

Arsenal value him at £11m.
