The news is no surprise. Denilson stated his desire to leave Arsenal very early on in he transfer window, with the hilarious remarks that he was "a winner." However, the Brazilian found it hard to find a club that would take on his services and high wages that he has been earning at Arsenal.
This resulted in him being picked to join the club on it's Asian tour, where he suffered humiliation after being substituted after coming on as a substitute himself. He stormed out and probably helped fast-track his way out, in what looks like being a loan deal.
In other news, we have finally been linked with some strikers. The Sun says we are preparing an imminent £14 million bid for Romelu Lukaku, Anderlecht's 6ft 3in giant starlet who has previously been linked with a host of Europe's top clubs.
Romelu is a very bright prospect and is a key player for Anderlecht where he has 31 goals in 71 games for his side, many whilst he plays as a lone striker. He has also played 9 times for the Belgian national side, scoring 2 goals.
The other striker Arsenal have recently been linked with is rather less well known. Joel Campbell, nicknamed "the Panther", is a left footed 19 year old Costa Rican international. He is a promising centre-forward who is powerful, and has great pace and finishing ability.
Gunnerblog shows a video of Arsenal chief executive Richard Laws arriving in Costa Rica to negotiate over the player's transfer, which is expeted to be in the region of 2-3 million pounds.
Lastly an update on Juan Mata, who is remaining calm despite the reported Arsenal and Tottenham interest in him. The Spaniard has gone on record saying:
Early this morning the Mail has repeated claims that Arsenal only have to cough up 20 million pounds to secure the 23 year old's services. A great deal for a wonderful talent in my view, especially in today's market where players like Downing and Henderson are going for similar prices.
Hopefully we get some more business done soon.
