Arsenal are reportedly interested in acquiring São Paulo defender Bruno Uvini and, with the north Londoners having sent Denilson on loan to the Brazilian outfit, their pursuit of the 20-year-old could be aided considerably.

According to talkSPORT, the Gunners are hoping their good relationship with São Paulo following the Denilson deal will now provide them with the advantage in the race for Uvini.

Arsenal allegedly received a more lucrative offer for Denilson from Fluminense, but opted to let the midfielder join São Paulo for the season.

Denilson, 23, returns to the club he left for Arsenal in 2006 and hopes the move with provide him with more regular first team football.

However, the Brazil international leaves Arsenal with a heavy heart and maintains a desire to return to the Emirates Stadium after the expiry of his loan deal.


"I move away with sadness because I have so many friends at Arsenal and everyone has always been so supportive towards me," he said.

"I want to say thank you to the club, and of course, also a big thank you to all the Arsenal fans who are very special.

"I'm now focused on doing well in Brazil next season, but will always be looking out for the Arsenal results."

Uvini, meanwhile, is a highly-rated full-back who is expected to captain Brazil during the forthcoming under-20 World Cup.
