Striker weighs up future
Nicklas Bendtner could cut his loan spell with Juventus short in January, unless he forces his way into the first team before then.
The Arsenal striker has struggled for regular action since moving to Turin in the summer and although he is happy in Italy, he wants to be playing on a more regular basis. Bendtner is ready to fight for his place, and did get an outing in the Champions League last night, but his agent Tom Brookes says they will discuss a move away from Juve unless things improve. "Why isn't he playing? In all honesty, you'd have to ask Antonio Conte. Every player wants to play more and do his job. Nicklas has patience and respects the club, his team mates and the decisions of the coach," Brookes said. "However, he is too strong a player to stay on the bench, so it's not good for him or for Juventus to keep him there. If it continues like this, we will consider our options. "Could that be from January? We'll talk about it over the next few weeks."
