Eintracht Frankfurt are weighing up whether a move for Nicklas Bendtner is a “financially viable” option, according to the club’s chairman.

The Arsenal striker had been widely expected to complete a move to the Bundesliga outfit after falling out-of-favour at the north London side in recent seasons.

Bendtner spent the best part of the 2012/13 campaign on loan at Serie A champions Juventus, starting just two games in seven appearances at the Turin outfit.

But Frankfurt chairman Heribert Bruchhagen hinted that the club were unwilling to meet the Denmark international’s wage demands.

“After weighing up all the arguments, Bendtner turned out not to be a realistic prospect,” said Bruchhagen.

“Now it’s up to us. There are no problems with Arsenal. We have to see if it’s financially viable.”

Bendtner scored 45 goals in 157 appearances for Arsenal after joining the north London side from Kjøbenhavns Boldklub in 2004.
