Denilson leaves Arsenal on mutual consent

Denilson leaves Arsenal on mutual consent

Arsenal midfielder Denilson will be looking for a new club, after he agreed to terminate contract on a mutual consent.

Denilson has joined Arsenal back in 2006 from São Paulo for £3.4 million. Despite a promising start at the Emirates stadium he has never been able to unlock the potential to a full measure and grow into a quality player. As a result he was deemed a surplus to requirements by Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger and loaned out to São Paulo, where he played two successive seasons.

This year, however Wenger decided it is time to offload the player and offered the player to leave for compensation.

Denilson’s agent Alexandre Soares admitted the player is free to leave Arsenal, and several clubs are already sniffing around. He 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,” he added.
