Nicklas Bendtner has not ruled out reviving his career at Arsenal next season.

The Danish forward is in the middle of a season-long loan at Juventus, but he remains under contract to Arsenal. Only on Sunday, Bendtner raised eyebrows when suggesting he would have no issue with joining the Gunners' bitter rivals Tottenham.

Bendtner admits he left the Emirates not on the best of terms, but he can envisage a scenario where he pulls on the Arsenal jersey in the future.

"It is a difficult one because I feel a lot of things for Arsenal and most of them are good things," Bendtner told Sky Sports News. "I left not on bad terms, but not great terms either.

"In football you never know but at the moment I am focused on Juventus and my future can lie at Arsenal or elsewhere.

"It is not 100% decided, but I am focused on Juventus and see where I go next year."

Bendtner has struggled to secure regular playing time in Italy, but he claims he is now at peak fitness and wants to get his hands on some silverware.

He said: "I have come here to win something and given they are the team that has won the most league titles, it is a big opportunity for me. I want to become a regular and start scoring goals."
