Brighton & Hove Albion and Norwich City are weighing up a late move for former Arsenal & Wolfsburg striker Nicklas Bendtner, according to the Daily Mail.
The 28-year old is still in the prime of his career, and is believed to want a return to the top flight of English football, but has received no offers and may instead look at the Championship.
The Danish international made 171 appearances for the Gunners, scoring 47 times, and was released back in 2014 when his contract expired.
He signed for German club Wolfsburg, making 47 appearances for them and was released again when he had his contract terminated in April of this year. Before that, he had scored twice in his 13 appearances in the Bundesliga last season.
He’s also played in the Championship before, for Birmingham in the 2006-07 season, scoring 12 goals and played in all but four games as the Blues gained promotion to the Premier League.
Norwich and Brighton are amongst the title contenders in the second tier, and they find themselves in 12th and 8th place respectively after five games.
Alex Neil has already brought in Nelson Oliveira in this transfer window, but will still be on the look out for a forward player as he is short in that area, with only Cameron Jerome, Steven Naismith and Kyle Lafferty at the club.
Glenn Murray is currently on loan at Brighton, with Tomer Hemed and Sam Baldock, so Chris Hughton may also be looking for a striker in the dying embers of this transfer window.
Because Bendtner is a free agent, neither club needs to wrap the deal up a tomorrow’s transfer deadline.
Norwich & Brighton fans, what do you think? Would Bendtner be a good signing for your side? Can he help you win promotion to the Premier League? Let us know below!
