AC Milan Line Up Surprise Bid to Sign Arsenal Midfielder: Wenger Sure to Consider Sale

San Siro side keen on Emirates Stadium midfielder who the Gunners can certainly afford to offload.

Sky Sports understands AC Milan are weighing up a move for Arsenal midfelder Denilson.

AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri is in the market for a defensive midfielder and Denilson is thought to be on his radar.

Denilson is currently on loan at Sao Paulo after finding first-team chances limited at the Emirates.

The Brazilian came through the youth ranks at Sao Paulo before joining Arsenal in August 2006 and he enjoyed a successful spell back on loan at his former club last season.

Unlike the sales of Alex Song and Robin Van Persie to Barcelona and Man United respectively, this is surely a bid from a European giant Arsene Wenger will be happy to complete. Quite why the San Siro side would be interested in the Brazilian youngster is hard to fathom but perhaps Rossoneri boss Massimiliano Allegri is an admirer of the 24 year old.

Tigerish midfielder Denilson took a couple of seasons to bed in at Arsenal but appeared to become part of Arsene Wenger’s first team plans in 2008/09, leading to the Sao Paulo born midfielder making 51 appearances in all competitions. However sub-standard displays over the next 18 months curtailed his progress at the Emirates Stadium.

Jack Wilshere pushed the Brazilian out of the first team picture and he spent last season on loan at Sao Paulo, during which he was sent off twice. Wenger appeared to be trying to permanently offload the box to box performer but Denilson was once again loaned out to Sao Paulo for another season but perhaps a move back to Europe is on the cards.

AC Milan may well feel that Denilson has the potential to make an impact in Serie A and surely any decent offer would be accepted by Wenger as the player doesn’t seem to have a future at the North London club.
