Barcelona target Arsenal midfielder Denilson

Barcelona are set to make an enquiry to Arsenal as to the availability of their Brazilian midfielder Denilson, reports from Spain suggest.

Sport comments that the 22-year-old has fallen out of favour with manager Arsene Wenger and has made just two league starts all season for the London club.

The emergence of Jack Wilshere alongside Abou Diaby has also seen the former Sao Paolo man fall further down the pecking order, sparking interest from a number of European clubs in securing his signature.

Bundesliga side Wolfsburg are the most recent side to be linked with an approach for Denilson, allegedly readying a £10 million bid, but it appears that Barca will look to hijack that move with a bid of their own.

Coach Pep Guardiola feels that he would fit well into the club’s philosophy, and the player himself has admitted that he could be on the verge of leaving English football.

He is quoted as saying: “There is talk of possible interest from Barcelona, and right now I would not rule out a change of scenery, but at the moment I’m an Arsenal player."
