Wolfsburg manager Steve McClaren has made Arsenal’s Denilson his surprise January transfer priority, according to reports in Germany.
The industrious midfielder, 22, started the season injured and has struggled to re-establish himself in Arsene Wenger’s first-team since returning from his abdominal problem.
The emergence of teenager Jack Wilshere has forced Denilson down the midfield pecking order and the Brazilian has made just three Premier League starts all season.
And McClaren is ready to offer Denilson the chance of more regular first-team action at Wolfsburg, who are currently only four places above the bottom of the Bundesliga.
According to these reports, Wolfsburg would be ready to pay as much as £11m to land Denilson, who has been at Arsenal since 2006. (Give Me Football – Official PFA Website)
Would the 22 year Brazilian be tempted by a move to the mid table Bundesliga side? Well it seems unlikely but given that Denilson has been handed just three Premier League starts this term he may feel that now is the time he should be securing regular first team football. The former Sao Paulo man has been at the Emirates for four and a half years now and may well be thinking long and hard about his options.
Arsene Wenger would be loathed to lose the services of talented holding midfielder but would probably not stand in his way and given the players ahead of Denilson it seems unlikely he will win a regular spot in the Arsenal side any time soon.
Wolfsburg are struggling thus far this season, sitting just three points from the drop and could well lose the services of goal machine Edin Dzeko in the summer and all of this could make the option a move to the club less interesting. However if a more attractive offer comes along then perhaps a move would be on the cards.
