Let Denilson go and get Ramsey back

arsenals denilson

Yesterday’s news headlines were all about the prospective £10 million bid for Denilson by our favourite Spanish side, Barcelona. I don’t see this really happening because they just signed Mascherano in the summer. Nonetheless, I would welcome such a move for the Brazilian.

Denilson has been with the first team for 3 years now. When he initially came in, I was really excited about the his play. He has exquisite movement and passing but he seemed to have regressed. The boy does not seem to give his 100 percent in every match and sometimes just saunters around. Last year’s F.A Cup defeat at Stoke was a prime example of the lackadaisical attitude that the boy has at times. He was at fault for the second goal, not bothered to track the midfield run of the opposition player.

He started a lot of games last year but this time around Arsene seems to have put more faith in Jack Wilshere than the Brazilian. Even Diaby was starting more games than the Brazilian until he got injured. Therefore he wouldn’t be a lost if we can get some decent money for him. Barcelona may not be the destination but I am hearing that a couple of German clubs are interested in him as well.

Another thing about letting Denilson go is we would free up a midfield role for Aaron Ramsey. The Welshman’s loan period at Nottingham Forest is coming to an end so he can be integrated back into the squad slowly. Without Denilson, Rambo’s chances would be better and I would definitely rate him over the Brazilian anytime.

So let’s thank Denilson for his services to the club and bid him farewell this January!

    Great piece. He was also at fault for both Spurs and Bragga’s first goals.

    Is he a DM? I can’t tell because he can neither tackle nor track the runs of opposing midfielders. His range of passing is poor but for 3-5 yards ones.

    He’s another useless foreign player preferred by Arsene and blocking the development of players like Lansbury.

    Every team needs a Denilson……a journeyman m/f who has good and bad days. He’s too valuable to lose and will always play a part in Arsenal’s season. It’s far too early to consider the return of Ramsey as to date he has barely had a kick at Forest.

    Denilson is worth 10 million. More than what spuds paid for VDV. There is obviously something about him you didn’t see.. He is a good squard player, good at link up play, and good positioning sense.

    He does made mistake, but don’t forget he is injured as well..
