What can Arsenal do about Denilson?

A recent feature of news on Arsenal.com about the player Samuel Galindo moving back to his homeland Bolivia on loan made me think about the large number of promising young players that never made it at Arsenal.

A player who this situation did remind me of is Denilson. The Brazilian is still under contract with Arsenal, with the Gunners being his parent club, whilst he is on loan with Brazilian team Sao Paulo. Denilson was a player that often caused a divide between the fans. Slated for his shocking performances by many, but he also earn his plaudits every once in a while due to his samba style of play, passing ability and rocking shots and free kicks, but when he played Arsenal’s odds went out on the Paddy Power Premier League odds!

Denilson – My Lawyer Has Spoken To Arsenal

Loaned-out Arsenal defensive midfielder Denilson has admitted his interest in a permanent deal with Brazilian side Sao Paulo, as the former Gunner failed to impress in London and had to be sent on loan so that he can get some playing time.

After the season spent on loan in Brazil, Denilson now wants to sign a permanent contract with the Brazilian side, being unwilling to return to the Londoners.

This might fit in perfectly if we take into consideration the fact that Arsene Wenger has been watching Sao Paulo’s attacking midfielder Lucas Moura, and might think about a possible exchange deal which may benefit both sides.

Arsenal Flop Denilson Doesn’t Want to Return. Do We Want Him Back?

Arsenal’s Denilson is not very eager for a return to London and has stated that he’d rather stay in Brazil with Sao Paulo.

The defensive midfielder had a horror season with the Brazilians whom he joined in the summer after a less successful 5 years spent at Arsenal. The Brazilian managed to get himself sent off twice in a total of ten games played for Sao Paulo.

“Personally, I’m very sad that the season will finish this way. Of course there’s still a game remaining and there is hope for the Libertadores,” he said.
