Arsenal set to offload Andre Santos - report
Arsenal are prepared to offload outcast Andre Santos in January despite pleas from the player to stay at the club according to the Daily Mail.
The Brazilian has come under fire this season for a series of subpar performances as well as asking for former Arsenal hitman Robin van Persie's shirt during their clash with Manchester United.
Andre Santos outlined his desire to stay in London in a recent interview with Globoesporte: "I received calls from interested clubs in Brazil, Turkey and Italy, but it is just speculation. Nobody handed me anything.
"The coach, who is also a manager, never said anything to me. I know he is very transparent and I am focused on staying at Arsenal, winning a title, doing well in the Champions League, and I have three more years of my contract.
"I'm happy here. I hope to play more and more opportunities. I'm at a top club in Europe, living in London, my family is well structured, and I'm well adapted.
"I have much to give at Arsenal and I will still run after that. I have many goals in this career."
