Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner is the subject of 'overwhelming' worldwide interest according to his agent.

The 24-year old, who is likely to depart North London this summer, starred for Denmark in the group stages at Euro2012 and his representative Jesper Lynghus says plenty of clubs are now after him as a result of his performances in Ukraine.

"The interest is overwhelming, just as it should be after the way Nicklas performed at Euro 2012," Lynghus told

"We are getting closer day by day.

"We are not commenting on individual deals at the moment, but it is fair to say the interest in Nicklas is global."
