Nicklas Bendtner is the target of interest from Borussia Monchengladbach, reports in Germany claim as the striker looks set to exit Arsenal this summer.

Bendtner has endured a tough spell at Arsenal since signing for the club in his youth in 2004. He has had spells on loan at Birmingham City, and after failing to impress for the Gunners, he joined Sunderland.

Talk took place of a possible move to the north east club on a permanent basis, with Bendtner making it clear he didn't want to go back to the Emirates where he would likely receive limited game time.

Instead, he joined Juventus on loan last season, in which the Italian outfit admitted the Dane wasn't their first choice, and after making just 12 appearances for the side over the course of the campaign, and suffering from injury woes and issues off the pitch, Bendtner has once again been sent back to Arsenal.

But Bild now claims that he is being considered by Gladbach as they look into bolstering their attacking options next season, with the side looking to challenge for European football again.

While Bendtner had insisted he had the skills to play for a top European club, the striker's options would appear to be more limited after such a disappointing spell at Juventus.

He was also caught drink-driving towards the end of last season, when police reportedly found the Denmark international driving on the wrong side of the road. As a result, he has been suspended from international duty for at least six months.

Arsene Wenger has already begun cleaning out the Arsenal squad of players who are unnecessarily taking up the wage bill. The manager has so far released Andrey Arshavin, Sebastien Squillaci and Denilson.

Bendtner could have the chance to showcase his skills in the Bundesliga should he choose to make the move to Gladbach, but the hitman has a lot to prove after consecutive seasons in which he has failed to live up to expectations.
