Nicklas Bendtner: Wanted in Germany

Nicklas Bendtner: Wanted in Germany

Bendtner is a free agent after leaving Arsenal and he has been linked with a number of sides, but Frankfurt, who tried to sign the player last season, remain on his trail.

The 26-year-old is reported to favour staying in England, with Villa now favourites for his signature, but Frankfurt remain keen.

"We already had good rounds of talk with (Nicklas) Bendtner last season," general manager Bruno Hubner has told Hessischer Rundfunk.

"His name is in our head and he can well imagine doing a deal with Eintracht Frankfurt as far as I am concerned.

"There is no deal and nothing concrete, still Nicklas Bendtner is definitely a transfer option." 

Meanwhile, Frankfurt are also said to be closing on a deal for Fiorentina's Khouma El Hadji Babacar, who spent last season on loan at Modena.

The 21-year-old's agent Patrick Bastianelli said: "Eintracht Frankfurt is out to sign Khouma Babacar. Bruno Hubner has been in negotiations with Fiorentina as well as with me.

"The club (Eintracht Frankfurt) has a good new manager in Thomas Schaaf. Thomas Schaaf has proved at Werder Bremen he is a quality manager!"

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
