Santos are interested in acquiring the talents Wolfsburg star Diego in January, according to Portuguese newspaper A Bola.

The Brazilian playmaker is out of contract in the summer and has been linked with a move to the Premier League with both Arsenal and Southampton being credited with an interest.

The 28-year-old went as far to say that he knew of interest from the Gunners and admits signing for Arsene Wenger and moving to the Emirates is an attractive proposition.

Speaking to The Sun, the Brazilian international said: "I know there is interest from Premier League clubs. I have heard Arsenal is one of them.

"It would be the ideal destination for me because their style suits my characteristics perfectly. Of course I would say yes to Arsenal."

Arsenal have assembled one of the most talented midfields in the Premier League with the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil starring for the Gunners. Undoubtedly, Diego would find it tough to compete for a starting spot in north London.

It may therefore be an attractive option for Diego to move back to his homeland, where Santos are believed to be keen to sign him in January.

Wolfsburg are ready to accept as little as €4m in the new year Diego instead of losing him for free in the summer.

As he tries to force his way back in to Luiz Felipe Scolari's plans ahead of the World Cup, a move to Santos, where he started his career, could give him the best opportunity of being noticed.
