Former Arsenal striker Bendtner to leave Wolfsburg for China

Nicklas Bendtner is seriously considering a big-money move to China according to reports.

It is believed that the Danish striker is the subject of an offer from an unnamed Chinese Super League outfit which would land him more than £100,000-a-week.

Bendtner is pondering a move away from the Volkswagen Arena after he was left out of Wolfsburg's match day squad for their Champions League clash with Gent on Wednesday night.

The 28-year-old former Arsenal forward has made just four starts in the Bundesliga in his 19 appearances in all competitions for Dieter Hecking who prefers Max Kruse and Bas Dost as his strike options.

The Denmark international, who spent time on loan with Birmingham City, Sunderland and Juventus during his Gunners career, could be the next player from a European club to join the Chinese revolution following lucrative deals signed by the likes of Ramires, Jackson Martinez, Alex Texieira and Ezequiel Lavezzi.
