Bendtner to Milan: Joke Or Respect?

The pink-loving Arsenal Striker Niklas Bendtner is apparently on the wanted list of Italian giants AC Milan.

The young Danish international has never really set the Emirates on fire with his performances, but he's one of the players that Arsene Wenger holds in high regard and expect great things from and does chip in with crucial goals at times.  

Niklas Bendtner, as young as he is, has tended to polarise his club fans with alleged over-confidence and straight talking. He has also been involved in brawls with the now departed gunner Emmanuel Adebayor. One thing you cant fault the player is that he is hard-working.

With AC Milan's pursuit of Brazil's Luis Fabiano apparently hitting the skids quicker than Didier Drogba, the Rossoneri has earmarked the young gunner as an option. The alleged interest from Milan should not really be surprising to fans since another Italian Club, AS Roma had once inquired about him.

But what does this say about a player that is not really a fan favorite? Is he really as good as Wenger would have us believe, evidence of that being Milan now considering him? Or was Milan just yanking everyone's chain?

Consider this though, if Niklas Bendner were to sign for AC Milan, and this won't happen because Arsene Wenger has just a lost a striker, what will Adabayor be thinking?
