The young Brazilian has been on loan at Brazilian side Sao Paulo this season following a disappointing campaign for the Gunners last term.
The 24-year-old midfield player found his first-team chances increasingly limited at the Emirates, with the likes of Aron Ramsey and Alex Song being Wenger’s first choice midfield pairing this season.
Denilson believes that his loan move away from the Emirates has helped rediscover his confidence and has hinted he could return to Arsenal in the future.
“I will remain at Sao Paulo until June 30th and then I will return [Arsenal],” said Denilson.
“I helped [Sao Paulo] this year with some good assists, established myself in the team and had some good games for them.
“I played regularly and I did not get sent off. I have been saying all along that I am still adapting to Brazilian football and the statistics show that was not excuse.
“The amount of cards and fouls I have received have been significantly reduced.” He added:
“I wish I could stay for six more months but that is Arsenal’s decision as I am under contract with them. “I will not be unhappy in London as I will be returning to one of the biggest clubs in the world.”
Denilson has played for Arsenal on 96 occasions, scoring seven goals.
