Crystal Palace are considering a move for ex-Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner, according to BILD and Richard Cawley of the South London Press.

Nicklas Bendtner, 28, has played 73 times and scored 29 times for Denmark since making his debut in 2006, and he doesn’t lack experience, especially in the Premier League.

The Dane enjoyed a total of nine years at Arsenal, with loan spells at Birmingham City, Sunderland and Juventus between 2005 and 2014.

He is the second ex-Arsenal striker to be linked with a move to Palace after Emmanuel Adebayor was reportedly close to a move to Selhurst Park.

The Eagles are in desperate need for a striking option as a lack of production from their front men has led to a collapse in form that has seen Alan Pardew’s men pick up just points in their last five games. In those matches, they’ve conceded eight times without scoring a single goal, and this run of poor results has seen them fall to eighth in the Premier League.

This season for Wolfsburg, Bendtner has managed to score four times in 16 games in all competitions, although he has been a bit-part player and hasn’t featured at all in any of the German side’s last five league games.

Palace boss Alan Pardew admitted that the Dane is available but also revealed that he is looking at other striking options.

Bendtner is available and there is someone else we’re looking at. Just someone we feel that will fit into our group and give is a lift. It is nice to see a big player come in.
