Bendtner in Italy for Juventus

Italian champions Juventus are on the verge of signing Arsenal’s Niklas Bendtner, according to Sky Sport Italia.

The Old Lady have turned their attention to the Danish international after failing to net Robin Van Persie and Dimitar Berbatov.

Manchester United beat the Old Lady to Arsenal’s Van Persie, while the Bulgarian last night snubbed Juve – and Fiorentina – in favour of Fulham.

Reports suggest that the 24-year-old, who was also wanted by Fiorentina and Siena, has already touched down in Milan.

The forward joined Arsenal in 2004 after impressing in the KB youth ranks. He spent the 2006-07 campaign on loan at Birmingham, while he was with Sunderland last term.

Bendtner played for his country at Euro 2012.
