Are Crystal Palace set to have failed Arsenal duo Marouane Chamakh and Nicklas Bendtner up front this season?
Sky Sports News filmed Arsenal’s Nicklas Bendtner leaving Crystal Palace after talks on Monday afternoon.
Whilst Sky Sports News were unable to shed any light on whether Ian Holloway had managed to broker a deal for the Danish striker, Bendtner’s presence at Selhurst Park was a clear indication that a deal could be done between the London clubs.
Bendtner has been linked with a raft of clubs throughout the summer, but the lack of any bids suggests that many clubs are wary of the Arsenal centre-forward who had had a serious of incidents off the field including being charged for drink driving and reports of nightclub scraps.
Bendtner has not played for the Gunners since 2011, but the striker still has one final year on his Emirates contract.
Crystal Palace are closing on deals for Adrian Mariappa and Barry Bannan.
Below is the video of Bendtner leaving Crystal Palace, together with a fantastic clip of a Crystal Palace fans doing the Joe Hart dance in the background of an SSN report.
