Denilson to leave Arsenal

Brazilian midfielder Denilson will be leaving Arsenal at the end of the month, the player’s agent has revealed.

The 25-year-old had a year left on his deal at the Emirates, but his contract will be terminated at the end of the month by mutual consent.

Denilson’s official representative Alexandre Soares has confirmed reports linking his client with a summer exit.

“I can confirm Denilson and Arsenal have agreed to terminate his contract at the end of this month,” Soares told Sky Sports.

“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.”

Denilson joined Arsenal from Sao Paulo in the summer of 2006, and he had a very promising start to his career in England.

The Brazilian started 36 Premier League games during the 2008/2009 season and was tipped to become a key player for the Gunners.

However, his career has since taken the wrong turn and he quickly lost his place in the starting line-up.

As a result, he has spent last two years on loan at Sao Paulo and is now set to leave Arsenal after seven years at the club.
