Stoke City are reportedly considering making a club-record £9 (€10.3) million bid for Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner.

According to the Daily Mirror, manager Tony Pulis is weighing up whether to bid the figure for the 23-year-old Denmark international who is looking for a fresh start away from the Emirates Stadium.

The forward has been with Arsenal since 2004 but has failed to hold down a permanent first-team place with the Gunners, and has already been heavily linked with a move to a number of German clubs.

Stoke, however, believe they can convince him to stay in England and have already held talks with his agents in advance of making the £9m (€10.3m) offer.

The Potters are also reportedly keen on Tottenham midfielder Wilson Palacios, who joined Spurs in January 2009 from Wigan Athletic for £12m (€13.8m) but has fallen down the pecking order since Sandro’s arrival last summer.

Pulis has made known his intention to strengthen his squad, saying recently: “We are threadbare at the moment. Fingers crossed we can bring one or two players in over the next few days.”
