Bendtner will end up at a 'top club', says agent

After impressing during Euro 2012, the Denmark international's representative Tom Brookes has stated his client will likely be at one of Europe's elite should he leave the Gunners
Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner will end up at a "top club" this summer, according to his agent.

The Denmark international, who spent last season on loan at Sunderland, impressed for his country during Euro 2012, scoring twice and earning an assist in three matches.

Reports surfaced in his homeland that the likes of Malaga and Galatasaray were chasing his signature, and agent Tom Brookes suggested that the 24-year-old could well join one of Europe's elite this summer.

"Nicklas is a top striker, who just proved himself at the Euros," Brookes told Ekstra Bladet.

"I'm certain that he is going to end up at a top club, but I'm not going to be drawn into speculation."

Bendtner still has two years remaining on his current contract with Arsenal, but seems to have been deemed surplus to requirements by Arsene Wenger.

Robin Van Persie, Theo Walcott and Marouane Chamakh were all ahead of the Dane in the pecking order in north London at the beginning of last year, and with Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski having joined the Gunners already this summer, the former Copenhagen hitman is likely to have to move on if he is to play regular first-team football.
