Nicklas Bendtner has claimed he would love to make a move to Barcelona or Real Madrid in the winter transfer window as the Arsenal striker looks for a way out of his current club.

Bendtner has been talking up the possibility of moving away from the Emirates as he continues to be handed a fringe role by Arsene Wenger. The striker has gone on loan twice in the last two seasons and while he was successful at Sunderland he failed to score a goal during his time with Juventus in the 2012-13 season.

Bendtner has since said that the only reason he didn't leave Arsenal permanently in the summer was that Wenger blocked his move after failing to land a striker. The manager has called on the Denmark international on seven occasions this season and he is still yet to find the back of the net.

And now the striker has told Politiken that he is hopeful of a move to Barcelona or Real Madrid.

"If I could decide: Real Madrid or Barcelona," he said when asked where he envisioned his career going.

On the constant questions surrounding whether he has turned down the opportunity to leave Arsenal because of the money, Bendtner said: "It is the sport that is the most important. I'm going somewhere where I know I can be happy to play. With a team where I can score goals and preferably to win something."

The comments come as Wenger is constantly connected with a move for a striker in the lead up to January as he seeks support for the on-fire Olivier Giroud.

Bendtner's exit from the club appears certain but a dream move to Barcelona or Madrid would appear to be as likely as a June snowstorm in Spain, particularly as he nearly sealed a move to Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt in the summer and the club refused to meet his wage demands.
