Arsenal fans are like bears with sore heads this morning after seeing a promising start and early goal against Everton cancelled out which led to the Gunners hanging on a bit for a point. The result meant that Tottenham went up to fifth, while Arsenal lie in seventh, a massive 12 points off the league leaders, Manchester United.
So I thought we all needed something to cheer us up today, and I have found something that might do the trick. Andre Santos has had offers from other clubs and is likely to be on his way out of the Emirates in January. There had been rumours that he might go back to his home country Brazil, but the 29-year old defender (can I call him that?) has declared his intention to still play football regularly in Europe, which probably means a return to Turkey.
If he does harbour intentions of playing, then he will have to move because I cannot see him playing for us. He is apparently on the sidelines with a stomach muscle problem at the minute, but that could just be disguising the fact that he is out of Wenger’s plans, we can only hope.
“My idea is to stay in Europe. I want to keep playing, wherever it might be.
“I still have many objectives on this continent, some clubs from Turkey have called me, but there is nothing concrete.
“If there is any interest from Sao Paulo, we’ll talk as I’m a professional.”
Santos did well for Turkish side Fenerbahce and is well thought of in the country, we will not stand in his way.
