Denilson demands to move on

Arsenal midfielder Denilson has told the club he wants to leave after becoming disillusioned with life at Emirates Stadium.

• Wenger targets tall players

Denilson made only six Premier League starts this season, compared to 19 in 2009-10 and 36 the season before that.

The Brazil international, who is believed to interest Sevilla and Wolfsburg, is expected to be one of the casualties of the Gunners' summer transfer business, and that suits the player.

"I'm still young. If I don't find another club in Europe, I will go back to Brazil and play there for six months,'' he was quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror. "My idea is to accept any offer from Spain, Italy or Germany from a club that is playing in the Champions League. I dream of maintaining a place in the Brazil national team.

"I've spoken twice with Arsene Wenger and my decision is clear. I'm not happy at Arsenal and, after five years at the club, it's best for me to go.

"I don't blame Arsene Wenger at all. I believe I've had my best season personally but want to win titles.''
