Striker getting closer to a decision on his future

Arsenal's Nicklas Bendtner is getting closer to deciding on his future amid 'overwhelming' and 'global' interest in his services, according to his representative. The Denmark striker spent last season on loan at Sunderland but has no plans to return to the Stadium of Light or Emirates Stadium. Bendtner did not do badly in advertising himself at Euro 2012, where he scored twice in the 3-2 defeat by Portugal. And the 24-year-old's agent, Jesper Lynghus, claims a number of clubs from around the world have been showing interest. Speaking to Danish newspaper, Lynghus said: "The interest is overwhelming, just as it should be after the way Nicklas performed at Euro 2012. "We are getting closer day by day. "We are not commenting on individual deals at the moment, but it is fair to say the interest in Nicklas is global." Fulham, meanwhile, are reported to be ready to step up their interest in a £5million move for Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey following captain Danny Murphy's move to Blackburn.
