Andre Santos (pictured above with Oprah Winfrey) is wanted by Flamengo, according to reports in the Brazilian media.
Arsenal’s ‘false three’ spent the final months of last season on loan at Gremio, but after their elimination from the Copa Liberatdores, the deal was cut short and he was sent back to London.
With the development of Kieran Gibbs and the arrival of Nacho Monreal, the cuddly maverick’s chances at Arsenal are non-existent and a move away is almost certain.
There has been interest from Fenerbache, his former club, but Globo Esporte suggest that Flamengo would be interested and that initial contact has already been made.
They, however, have an issue with requires them to move on-loan Corinthians defender Ramon, and it remains to be seen if they can afford to make a deal with Arsenal.
Santos played for Flamengo in 2006, on loan from Figueirense, and was not included in Arsenal’s Asia tour squad which left for Indonesia this afternoon.
