With all the negative news and rumours going around at Arsenal these days, I was over the moon today when The Mirror reported that Villarreal are targeting Denilson to join them as they seek a long term replacement for Marcos Senna in the center of their midfield.
The moment Denilson came out at the end of the season and declared he wanted to leave, I thought we would never see him at Arsenal again. But no one has come in with a serious offer for him this summer. Hopefully this speculation linking Villarreal with Denilson materializes and we can get rid of the Brazilian and maybe use the cash we get from him on West Ham’s Scott Parker.
Speculation linking Arsenal with Parker has died down over the last couple of weeks. I still believe that Parker would be a great addition to our squad as he would add some much needed bite and experience to our central midfield.
