Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner says he is in talks with "five or six clubs" as he nears an exit from Emirates Stadium.

Bendtner, 25, has fallen out of favour at Arsenal and has spent the past two seasons on loan at Sunderland and, most recently, Juventus.

The Denmark international has been tipped to secure a permanent move away from the Gunners this summer, and he has claimed a decision over his future will be made in the next fortnight.

"I am talking with five or six clubs at the moment over a permanent transfer," Bendtner said in the Metro. "Things are agreed with Arsenal and I will decide which club I sign for in the next two weeks."

Bendtner joined Arsenal in 2005 and has since made 99 Premier League appearances for the club, scoring 22 goals.
