The Danish striker claims the Gunners have accepted offers from five clubs for his services and now he has to make a decision for the good of his career.
"Will it be good for me to go to a big club where I risk the bench? No, I'd rather go somewhere where the club is located just below the top where I can play every week," he told Ekstra Bladet.
"I can take a step back to take three forward."
25-year old Bendtner, who has been at Arsenal since 2005, has been sent on loan to Sunderland and Juventus in the past two seasons but is sure to leave the Emirates Stadium permanently in the next month or so.
