Arsenal star Neves Denilson hasn’t officially decided to leave the London club, Arsene Wenger has insisted.

"Denilson wants to play, I did speak to him to see if he has opportunities or not,” Wenger told reporters.

"We have to face many comments, but I have enough experience that the club is in a healthy financial situation and we have got the basis of the team - but we know we want to be stronger next year."

Denilson said on Friday that he was ready to depart Arsenal, with the benchwarmer getting limited game time and making obvious his disappointment with going a sixth season without a trophy.


"This has been the worst season of my life and I am so upset, so frustrated,’ Denilson said.

‘I am a winner and I came here to win trophies but I've been here for five years and won nothing.

‘A footballer's career is over very quickly so it is time for me to move on.”

The Arsenal midfielder has only made 16 league appearances for the Gunners this season, with 10 of those starting off the bench.

Meanwhile, Wenger has revealed that he will be very active in the transfer market this season, with the Arsenal manager citing the fair play rules as reason to act quickly and sign players this year to build the club around.

"The market will be hyperactive because everyone believes financial fair play will happen soon,” Wenger said.

"So we are quickly doing the last buying before the stores will be closed. And for the very first time for a while, I will be very active too."
