Could Nicklas Bendtner knock Arsenal out of the League Cup in two weeks' time?

Nicklas Bendtner has cut a frustrated figure during his career. The 28-year-old has drifted from Sunderland to Juventus on loan since leaving Arsenal, before a difficult spell at Wolfsburg.

And it looks as though the former Gunner could be heading back to England with Nottingham Forest, if rumours are to be believed.

As is often the case, the news was partly met with derision.

Although Forest fans were more than happy to hear that the Danish striker was potentially on his way.

But the twist came when the sharper among us realised that Arsenal play Nottingham Forest in their opening League Cup fixture in two weeks.

It would be just Arsenal fans’ luck, wouldn’t it?

This is unlikely. But maybe…

All of a sudden, Nottingham Forest v Arsenal just got interesting.
