Arsène Wenger says Nicklas Bendtner could be involved against Udinese on Tuesday night even though the Dane may still leave Arsenal.

Bendtner has been strongly linked with a move away from Emirates Stadium this summer and the manager has confirmed that his future could lie elsewhere if he finds the right club.

The 23-year-old admitted that he was after a move while on international duty recently but Wenger revealed on Monday that he might feature in the Champions League this week.

“In his interview Bendtner said he was gone, but I checked and he’s not gone at all!” he said.

“I promised I would let him go if he found the right club and that has not changed because when I make a promise I keep it.

“But if he doesn’t find the right opportunity he will stay and fight for his place like everybody else. He looks sharp in training.”
