Denilson is set to leave Arsenal this summer and it looks as though it might be destination Roma. The Italian giants are preparing a £5 mill bid for the midfielder.
Denilson hasn’t won anything since moving to London in 2006 and sees himself as a winner in a failing team. The 23 year-old Brazilian has shockingly announced his intention to leave the Emirates and seek a new challenge elsewhere in order to win trophies.
“This has been the worst season of my life and I am so upset, so frustrated,” he told The Sun.
“I am a winner and I came here to win trophies but I’ve been here for five years and won nothing.
“A footballer’s career is over very quickly so it is time for me to move on.”
It leaves many questions surrounding the player who obviously feels he is of a higher standard than his current team mates. The player has become increasingly frustrated this season after spending the majority of his time on the bench rather than on the pitch but there is a reason for that. The Brazilian is not good enough for the Emirates and so it would be in the club’s best interest to cash in on the overly ambitious midfielder this summer.
Fellow Arsenal player, Andrei Arshavin could also be shown the Emirates door this transfer window. The Russian was also arrogant when he first came to England but nowadays seems to show a lack of care about anything to do with the club.
The big money flop trained with his old club, Zenit last week, igniting rumours of a return home. Even though he denies the rumours, it might not be up to him as Wenger looks to build a new squad that he will not be part of.
It looks like Manuel Almunia might also be shipped out as Arsenal look to rejuvenate their squad. The Keeper lost his place in the starting line-up mid-season after countless errors and could look to move back to La Liga to re-ignite hi career.
What say you then, Gooners?
