Arsenal have found it hard to shift Bendtner, having seemingly run out of patience with the player, who is now on loan at Juventus.
"It is not for nothing that I loaned him to Juventus. He is a talented player. There he will grow and then return to my team,' the Arsenal manager told the Italian paper, Tuttosport.
"I am convinced that at a team like Juventus, in a very difficult league, especially for strikers, he can make the final leap in quality.
"Don't forget, he is a boy of 24 years. The right age to prove who he is. The talent is not missing, otherwise I would not have bought him from Copenhagen when he was just 16 years old."
