Nicklas Bendtner could be forced to drop down a division in order to find a new club after it emerged that Championship outfits Norwich City and Brighton are interested in signing him.
The player is available on a free transfer after leaving Wolfsburg at the end of last season. However, he has failed to find a new club even after months of search. Many clubs are concerned about the discipline and the goalscoring abilities of the former Arsenal striker. Once upon a time, Bendtner was the first choice forward for Arsenal when the club was struggling due to lack of options
The Danish forward has always been seen as a very confident player, but pundits are of the opinion that he has been let down by his overconfidence more than anything else. In recent seasons, though, Bendtner has been involved in several altercations on and off the field. As a result, clubs are not getting the confidence to sign him even on a free transfer. His career has especially gone downhill since 2010. He has spent time on loan at clubs like Birmingham City, Sunderland, and Juventus. His time with English clubs is plenty and this is one of the reasons behind Norwich and Brighton being interested in the player.

Nicklas Bendtner has been a free agent since April of the ongoing year as his contract with Wolfsburg terminated prematurely as the Danish player did not have a healthy relationship with various figures of the club and it ultimately finished up with the 28 year old attacker having his contract terminated.
The Danish forward Nicklas Bendtner did a few things with Wolfsburgh that put him on hot water and it was only a matter
of time until he was kicked off from the team.
Oversleeping, arriving late and even posing with the brand of a vehicle that is the direct rival of Wolfsburg’s main backer which is Volkswagen. These are a few of things that sparked Bendtner’s unhealthy relationship with key figures of Wolfsburg.
Now that Bendtner is a free agent, there are rumors floating around that are linking the Danish attacker with a number of different clubs, one of these clubs is the Scottish outfit Rangers FC.
Rangers FC actually attempted to sign Nicklas Bendtner back in 2006 when Paul Le Guen was in charge of the club but at that time Bendtner was an 18 year old boy who was performing with Arsenal and the Premier League club wasn’t interested in offloading the youngster.
Considering that Bendtner is now available to be signed, he could turn into a viable option for Rangers FC especially after the main goal-scoring threat of Rangers FC picked up a hamstring injury.

Nicklas Bendtner has been an infamous player for quite a while now and many have wondered what kind of spell he had over Wolfsburg to not let him go.
Many have been questioning his behavior, his late appearances and plays of late but that’s no longer concern. Good news for all of the haters and bad news for all of the still die hard true fans of the player, his hold (or whatever voodoo magic he had over Wolfsburg) is now finally over.
While he’s described as a Danish mad talented striker, he joined up with the Bundesliga side when moving from Arsenal about two years ago. This comes at a loss though because while he has played 44 games, he has only made 9 goals total. As a result of these plays and his attitude as of late, Wolfsburg is finally cutting the chord and making the smart decision.
Wolfburg’s own Director of Sports, Klaus Allofs said on the club’s own website that the current situation the team was in because of Bendtner was nowhere near satisfactory and it wasn’t acceptable. He went on to state that it was completely unsatisfactory and that it wasn’t able to be endured anymore. The news comes as they had a meeting in secret on Wednesday and even sat down with his agent to discuss possible solutions for the future of the striker. Read more »
In the opinion of Aritz Aduriz, the veteran player of Athletic Bilbao, Neymar might be one of the most accomplished and well known individual in the soccer world, but, not everything is right about his attitude and he definitely needs to improve it.
Aduriz was indulged in quite an animated tussle with Neymar on the pitch during the recent game between Barcelona and Athletic.
Not only did Aduriz foul Neymar, but, he also seemed to be deliberately getting in physical contact with him.
However, the Spaniard later clarified that nothing was intentional on his part and he even conveyed his apologies to Neymar for whatever happened, but, he did say that he wished the Barcelona superstar could bring a little change in the way he goes about his game on the pitch.
Post that Cup game, which resulted in a 1-2 loss for Athletic, Aduriz, the only player to have found the net for the home team, said, “I was not looking to hurt him by any means. Those sorts of stuffs happen in a game.”
“But, I would like to say that although Neymar is one of the greatest players around, he should change his attitude a little bit.” Read more »
