Nicklas Bendtner set to leave Emirates Stadium for good.
Malaga are in talks with Arsenal over the transfer of Nicklas Bendtner, according to Spanish source AS.
The striker reportedly arrived in the Costa Del Sol on Friday to discuss a possible €3m (£2.5m) move to La Rosadela.
The only obstacle to a deal appears to be convincing the Denmark international to take a significant pay-cut, with cash-strapped Malaga only prepared to offer the 25-year-old a modest salary.
Malaga head-coach Bernd Schuster is keen to bolster the team’s attack after losing a number of key players already this summer, including Spain international Isco.
Bendtner spent the whole of last season on loan at Serie A champions Juventus but made just two league starts for the Old Lady and failed to find the net in a dismal campaign.
The forward has also spent time on loan at Birmingham City and Sunderland since joining the Gunners in 2004.
Bendtner had looked set to join Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt but a move to La Liga now seems the most likely option for the Dane.
The forward has returned to London but negotiations between Arsenal and Malaga are ongoing.
