The on-loan Arsenal forward was treated in London by Arsenal consultant Ernest Schilders after suffering the injury in last week's Coppa Italia meeting with Cagliari.

A statement on Juve's official website confirmed that the 24-year-old has had the adductor longus tendon in his left thigh reinserted, with his prognosis and rehabilitation schedule to be verified with English doctors over the next few days.

Bendtner, who is likely to miss at least two months, has been a peripheral figure since joining the Italian champions on a season-long loan this summer.
