Nicklas Bendtner should leave Arsenal to secure regular first-team football, according to Denmark head coach Martin Olsen.

The 25-year-old striker has made three Premier League appearances from the bench this season as Arsene Wenger continues to persist with Olivier Giroud up front.

Bendtner came close to a summer move away from The Emirates in the summer amid interest from Crystal Palace and Hull City before Wenger blocked a possible transfer.

But Denmark boss Olsen feels Bendtner is lacking match sharpness despite his natural talent and urged the forward to seek a move in the January transfer window.

“Bendtner scored two great goals for us in the game against Italy, but there were also things he lacked in the match and this only comes through playing games,” Olsen said.

“It is for this reason that he should find something new this winter, and so, we know that well.

“I think he will make the recommendation to himself and that is the main thing. Footballers want to play football.

“He has maybe 10 years left to go; he must use them well.”
