RUMOUR MILL, June 27 - Saints linked with Danish international striker Bendtner

Daily Echo: Nicklas Bendtner Nicklas Bendtner

Saints are being linked with a striker who has only scored two league goals in his last two seasons.
Danish international Nicklas Bendtner was this week released by Arsenal after nine years at the club.
The 26-year-old is now available on a free transfer, and has been mentioned in the London press as a potential target for new Saints boss Ronald Koeman.
Bentdner scored just twice in 15 league and cup appearances for Arsenal last season.
Prior to that, in 2012/13, he didn’t score at all – failing to find the net in a nine-match loan spell at Juventus.
During the 2011/12 season Bendtner was loaned out to Sunderland with some success, scoring eight goals in 28 Premier League games.
In all, he scored 24 Premier League goals for the Gunners in 41 starts plus a whopping 67 sub outings.
Bendtner scored against Saints in 2006/07 while on loan to Birmingham City, for whom he netted 11 times in 42 Championship matches.

I hope this is a joke. Bendtner is the worst of all worlds: high cost, high maintenance and mostly ineffective. Arsenal have tried unsuccessfully to shift him for years.

I have seen very good donkeys playing football. That's not a nice way to compare donkeys who (by comparison) are very intelligent.
