Following the sale of Oliver Burke, Nottingham Forest currently have plenty of money in the club coffers and it appears they are looking to use some of that extra cash to make a move for former Arsenal and Wolfsburg striker Nicklas Bendtner according to journalist Alan Nixon.
Bendtner is currently a free agent following his release from Bundesliga side Wolfsburg and while he obviously wouldn’t command a transfer fee, he would swallow up a large chunk of funds in various other ways such as agent fees, signing on fee and of course wages.
The 28-year-old has a wealth of experience and would be a star name in this Nottingham Forest side, as well as representing Arsenal and Wolfsburg as previously mentioned, Bendtner has also represented the likes of Sunderland, Birmingham and Italian giants Juventus.
The Danish international does actually have previous experience of playing in the Championship after his season long loan spell with Birmingham City in the 2006-2007 campaign where he appeared for The Blues 48 times in total, scoring on 13 occasions.
Bendtner has been capped by the Danish national team 72 times, scoring an incredible 29 times in the process including goals against some of the worlds best teams including the likes of Brazil, Portugal, Germany and Italy.
