Bendtner, 25, has fallen out of favour at Arsenal and has spent the past two seasons on loan at Sunderland and, most recently, Juventus.

The Denmark international has been tipped to secure a permanent move away from the Gunners this summer, and he has claimed a decision over his future will be made in the next fortnight.

"I am talking with five or six clubs at the moment over a permanent transfer," Bendtner said in the Metro.

"Things are agreed with Arsenal and I will decide which club I sign for in the next two weeks."

Bendtner joined Arsenal in 2005 and has since made 99 Premier League appearances for the club, scoring 22 goals.
