German newspaper Bild said the forward, who has scored 24 goals in 58 internationals, is set to sign a two-year deal with an option for a further year at Wolfsburg, who finished fifth in last season's Bundesliga to qualify for the group stages of the Europa League.

A free agent since his contract with Arsenal expired this year, Bendtner also played for Birmingham City and Sunderland as well as spending a season on loan at Serie A side Juventus during their title-winning campaign in 2012-13.

The 26-year-old scored 24 goals in 106 appearances for Arsenal.
