Nicklas Bendtner is set to discover his fate within the next 48 hours after it was confirmed by Eintracht Frankfurt that they are close to completing a deal for the Arsenal striker.

The Denmark international has endured a difficult last two seasons away from north London; firstly disappointing at Sunderland before injuries and a loss of form hampered his opportunities at Juventus.

Having fallen out of favour with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, Bendtner has been keen to secure a permanent move away from the Emirates and it seems as though he may finally be granted his wish.

German side Eintracht Frankfurt have been in negotiations for some time and it seems as though they are confident a deal will happen in the coming days after speaking to the striker and Wenger.

"At the request of Danish player Nicklas Bendtner and his advisors, on Tuesday 9th July, final talks in Frankfurt were held between the striker and Eintracht Frankfurt," read a statement on the Bundesliga club's website.

"Sporting director Bruno Hubner is in close contact with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger regarding this and the final decision concerning the case of Bendtner will be taken within the next two days."

The 25 year old has spent more than eight years with Arsenal having first joined as a teenager from Danish club Kjøbenhavns Boldklub. He forced his way into contention after an impressive loan spell with Birmingham and scored 15 goals in the 2008-09 season.

Bendtner also has an impressive return for his country having scored 22 times for Denmark in his 55 appearances, however, he has often struggled to replicate this form at club level.

Should he join Eintracht then he would have the opportunity to play in Europe as the club enjoyed an impressive season in which they finished in sixth place and secured a spot in the Europa League.
