Arsenal target wants to stay

Published Add your comment

Brazilian teenager Casemiro has confirmed his desire to stay with Sao Paulo, despite reported interest in his signature from Arsenal.

The 19-year-old continues to impress for both club and country, and has frequently been linked with a big-money move to Europe.

Arsenal has been touted as a potential destination for Casemiro, as Arsene Wenger plots his moves during the January transfer window.

Along with the Gunners, Serie A outfit Roma have also been linked with the midfielder, and are reportedly planning a £10 million bid for his services.

However, Casemiro is content with life in Sao Paulo, and believes he owes a debt of gratitude to his current employers.

''I know I didn't finish the year in a good way," he told Sambafoot. "It was not like I planned.

"But now it's a new year, a new life. I went on vacation and have returned with a new mind-set. I will work hard to regain my place here at São Paulo."
