Bendy's new bird's worth a bundle

Not the greatest round-up of Arsenal stories from this morning’s papers today but what scant coverage there is is pretty much here. First off we have RVP telling the Sun that he does not believe his game is similar to his Liverpool and Chelsea counterparts Torres and Drogba.
He said: “I don’t see myself as a true out-and-out striker. Guys likes Fernando Torres and Didier Drogba, they are real killers.
“I try to bring my own dimension to the forward position. I feel I play between a target striker and a shadow striker. I am a combination of both and that’s just fine.
“In the league I have now contributed seven assists and I am just as proud of these as the seven goals I have scored. I find it crucial to be effective in both spheres for the team.”
Though it’s not strictly football, the same paper tells us that Nic Bendtner has pulled some Doris connected to the Danish royal family worth £400million.
It says: The Premier League ace, 21, was seen sharing a romantic stroll in the park with Baroness Caroline Luel-Brockdorff, 34.
London-based Caroline has her own castle and pocketed the £400million payoff after splitting two years ago from multi-millionaire banker husband Rory Fleming – cousin of James Bond creator Ian.
The Daily Mail has an exclusive tale about our players  giving up a day’s salary and match bonuses for their forthcoming top of the table game against Chelsea.
The club are looking to raise £1million for Great Ormond Street Hospital this season and captain Cesc Fabregas and his team-mates have pledged their own cash. Arsenal hope to raise £200,000 from the game on November 29.
The same paper reports that the selection of the Emirates Stadium as one of the proposed London venues for the 2018 World Cup isn’t guaranteed.
Arsenal have yet to sign up to the FA bid because some of the FIFA regulations are so open-ended and Arsenal’s plc company want to know exactly what their contractual responsibilities would be before they put pen to paper, it says.
And finally, the Mirror reports that AW  wants young French striker Gilles Sunu to sign a new deal before he lets him out on loan to the Championship.
The teenage hot-shot is making big strides at the Emirates and Wenger wants him to commit his long-term future to the Gunners quickly.
Sunu, who has played in the Carling Cup this season, is wanted on loan by Blackpool. However Wenger insists that he pens a new deal before he goes.
The youngster is out of contract in the summer and Wenger does not want to risk losing him on a long-term basis if he fancies a move elsewhere.
