Nicklas Bendtner’s proposed move to Eintracht Frankfurt could be off after chairman Heribert Bruchhagen cast his doubt on signing the Arsenal striker.
Bendtner has been in talks over a move to the Commerzbank-Arena after the club confirmed that the Dane was in Germany on Tuesday to finalise a deal.
However, the forward’s wage demands appear to have hindered the transfer, and the move may now be off as Frankfurt consider whether they can afford the switch.
Bruchhagen told kicker.de: "After weighing up all the arguments, Bendtner turned out not to be a realistic prospect.
"Now it's up to us. There are no problems with Arsenal. We have to see if it's financially viable."
The 25-year-old spent last season on-loan with Serie A champions Juventus, but he failed to score a single goal during his time in Italy and they chose not to make the deal permanent.
