Another star leaves
Nicklas Bendtner says his best is yet to come after he left Arsenal for Juventus on a season-long loan deal.
The Italian champions have the option to sign the Danish striker at the end of his spell and the 24-year-old is looking forward to spell in Serie A.
"I want to fulfil my potential here and show the fans my absolute best as that is yet to come. I am sure I will," he wrote on Twitter.
Bendtner has been with the Gunners since 2005, but he has struggled to break into the first team and spent last season on loan at Sunderland, where he scored eight goals in 25 games. He also played the 2006-07 season on loan at Birmingham.
His move to Italy could become permanent next year, when the Serie A champions have the option to buy the player.
Juventus had been linked with moves for Marco Borriello, Dimitar Berbatov and Fernando Llorente.
Bendtner will be competing with the likes of Mirko Vucinic for a starting spot at the Juventus Stadium.
Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger is said to be closing in on signing Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien on loan but time is ticking on the 11pm transfer deadline should any such deal be negotiated.
