Sporting Lisbon chief Carlos Freitas denies they're in talks to sign Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner.

The Dane is reported to be on his way to Sporting this weekend.

But Freitas says: "I have no justification for such news. Bendtner is a player who is as close to Sporting as Higuain or Drogba are.

"Those are players who are at the same distance from Sporting. The reports of a move for Bendtner are a fictitious production."
