Gallas & Bendtner to be given the boot!

William Gallas and Nicklas Bendtner have both been linked with a move out of Arsenal when the transfer window opens next month with Arsene Wenger reportedly planning to 'freshen up his squad after a disappointing start to the season'.

Despite the Arsenal manager insisting only last week that he wants Gallas to remain at the club, The Times claims that the Frenchman, stripped of the captaincy last month in the wake of his public criticism of his team-mates, could depart for Italy.

'Claudio Ranieri, the Juventus coach, knows Gallas well and signed him for £6.2 million from Marseilles while in charge of Chelsea in 2001. AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain have also expressed an interest in the 31-year-old, but Arsenal would prefer to do business with the Turin club,' it claims.

Bendtner has been in woeful form of late, repeatedly conceding possession during Wednesday night's defeat against Porto a week after his profligacy enabled Burnley to knock a young Arsenal side out of the Carling Cup.

According to the newspaper, 'West Bromwich Albion want to sign Bendtner on loan until the end of the season but the 20-year-old Denmark forward is reluctant to move to a team who are bottom of the table. Tony Mowbray, the West Brom manager, stepped up his interest in Bendtner this week after finding out that Ishmael Miller has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a serious knee injury.

'Bendtner made a name for himself with 11 league goals while on loan at Birmingham City during the 2006-07 season, but his recent performances and attitude have put his future at the club in doubt.'
