Football 365 are reporting that Arsenal have agreed to let Denilson leave the club, having come to an arrangement regarding the final year of his contract.
They quote the player’s agent, Alexandre Soares, who said, “I can confirm Denilson and Arsenal have agreed to terminate his contract at the end of this month.”
“Denilson is free to move to another club and a number of clubs are interested in him. I do not want to name teams, but there is interest from Brazil as well as Russia, Italy, Germany and Turkey and I am talking to them.
“No decision has been made and we will assess all offers that come our way. If Denilson does stay in Brazil Sao Paulo has the priority, but I do not rule out him moving to another Brazilian club as well.”
The Brazilian joined Arsenal in 2006, on deadline day, and made a total of 153 appearances for the club, scoring 10 goals.
His best season came in 2009/10 when he scored 6 goals, but after showing great promise in his early years, lost his way and has spent two seasons out on loan.
Arsenal fans have been looking for the club to get rid of the ‘deadwood’, players on loan they don’t want but can’t sell, so this move shows they’re being pragmatic and cutting ties rather than hanging on for transfer fees which would likely be minimal in any case.
Arseblog News wishes Denilson good luck at his next club.
