Nicklas Bendtner has snubbed a move to Trabzonspor to stay at Arsenal because no new strikers will be arriving at the Emirates.

It was expected Arsene Wenger would bring in a new forward to help Olivier Giroud stay fresh and as insurance in case the club’s top scorer suffered a lengthy injury.

But moves for Schalke’s attacking midfielder Julian Draxler, Lazio’s Germany international Miroslav Klose, Real Madrid prospect Alvaro Morata and Juventus forward Mirko Vucinic have all failed to materialise.
