There are reports Nicklas Bendtner’s Juventus debut will be delayed until the former Arsenal striker can lose weight.
The Dane was brought in on loan with an option to buy from the Gunners, but his initial impact has not been impressive.
According to the Italian media, Bendtner seemed very overweight during his first training session with teammates in Turin.
It’s believed he will be placed on a strict diet and exercise regime so that he can get in shape quickly.
At this stage it is not clear when Bendtner will be able to make his Serie A debut, but he has just under two weeks to prepare.
