Denilson will join the likes of Andrey Arshavin and Sebastian Squillaci out of the door at Arsenal as early as next month.
The once highly-rated Brazilian youngster will see his Arsenal career come to an end this summer after the club informed him that he is not part of their plans ahead of the 2013/14 season.
Denilson has spent nearly two seasons now in his homeland after being shipped back to his old club Sao Paulo during the summer of 2011, despite the exits of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri leaving a void in Arsenal’s midfield.
The aim of Denilson’s initial loan move was for the midfielder to rediscover the potential which saw him attract a £3.4million transfer to the Emirates stadium in August 2006.
But despite a solid effort in this campaign’s Campeonato Brasileiro, the 25-year-old has failed to convince the Gunners and even he admitted concerns over his future recently.
“I don’t know what will happen but I hope my situation is solved quickly.” Denilson said
Sao Paulo on the other hand are stalling over their decision. Vice-president Joao Paulo de Jesus Lopes revealed two weeks ago that there will be no offer of a permanent move for Denilson just yet because it would ‘cost more money’.
Meanwhile, other forgotten Arsenal loanees Nicklas Bendtner, Maroaune Chamakh, Andre Santos and Johan Djourou will discuss their future with the club next month.
