Aresenal's André Santos hints at exit amid Turkey interest

Arsenal defender André Santos has hinted at possibly leaving the club after revealing that a number of Turkish clubs have enquired about his availability.

The Brazilian left-back has struggled to make an impact at the Emirates since his €7 million move from Fenerbahçe in 2011.

Santos has played down reports linking him with a return to his native Brazil, but confirmed his interest in moving back to Turkey as he still retains the desire to play regular football in Europe.

Santos told Esporte: "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 São Paulo, we'll talk as I'm professional, but there was nothing."

Santos was the weak link in Arsene Wenger’s side when given the chance to start, due to an injury to Kieran Gibbs, and recently angered Gunners fans after swapping shirts with former team-mate Robin van Persie during the club’s defeat to Manchester United.

The 29-year-old also revealed he believes Arsenal can still win the Premier league, despite currently sitting 10 points behind leaders United.

He said: "The team are doing very well, we are very confident that we can finish in first place in the Premier League.

"There are 20 rounds to be played, it's only the beginning, a lot will happen."
