Could Bendtner end up on Humberside?

Nicklas Bendtner has been searching for a move away from Arsenal for some time with the striker having spent the past couple of seasons on loan at clubs throughout Europe.

Despite several transfer bids falling through over the last few weeks, it seems that newly promoted Hull could be Bendtner’s saviour with the club lining up a £3m bid in the works.

Hull have been desperate to land a top calibre striker in the transfer window so far and they feel that Bendtner fills all the criteria they need to lead the line at the KC Stadium.

Bendtner has been quite vocal about his desire to play first team football on a regular basis and has only ever featured intermittently for The Gunners in the last few seasons.

The Dane has spent the last two seasons on loan at Sunderland and Juventus where he had a mix of highs and lows during those spells.

His spell at Sunderland was fairly successful for the Dane where he had notched up 28 appearances and scored 8 goals realising some of his potential that had been shown at Arsenal.

This drew interest from some of the biggest clubs in Europe and the striker signed for Serie A champions Juventus on a season long loan. But his fortunes in Turin took a turn for the worse with an injury blighted season limiting Bendtner to just 8 games where he failed to score a single goal.

Bendtner’s misfortunes have meant that the Dane has had to lower his targets somewhat in a bid to secure a move away from The Emirates Stadium.

Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt had been poised to complete a £3m deal for the striker but contract negotiations fell though at the end of last week alerting Hull to making a possible bid.

Hull themselves haven’t much in the transfer so far with the club desperate to land a striker to help their chances of survival in the Premier League.

The club were about to sign Burnley striker Charlie Austin for £5m but the striker failed his medical preventing the move from being completed.

Alongside that, the club’s other targets such as Celtic’s Gary Hooper and Aston Villa’s Darren Bent have been valued too highly making them a no go area for Hull.

With both sides having a miserable summer so far, a successful deal between Hull and Bendtner could finally help turn their fortunes around before the season gets underway next month.
