Bendtner reiterates desire to leave Arsenal amid offers from Italy, Spain and Germany

The Denmark international, who spent last season on loan with the Gunners' Premier League rivals Sunderland, claims to have already snubbed opportunities from abroad

Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has confirmed that he wants to leave the club and revealed he has received offers from European clubs.

The 22-year-old has previously stated that he would not play for the Gunners again due to a lack of first team opportunities, and was farmed out on loan to Sunderland on transfer deadline day last summer.

And, after putting himself in the shop window with an impressive showing at Euro 2012 with Denmark, Bendtner has again stated his intention to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer.

He told Sporten.dk: "It is not an option to stay at Arsenal. It's not something I want or Arsenal. I expect that there will be a clarification on my club situation before the transfer window closes. There are concrete talks."

When asked if he had rejected any offers, Bendtner was reluctant to state which clubs were interested in securing his signature.

However, he claimed to have had approaches from Italy, Spain and Germany, adding: "Yes, I have [rejected offers], and it may be, for various reasons. I have some requirements to be fulfilled and they have not been so, it becomes a no."

Reports this week have suggested that the Gunners are prepared to use Bendtner as makeweight in a deal that would see AC Milan defender Phillipe Mexes make the switch to north London.
