Young Brazilian midfielder with excellent potential, Denilson has captained the Brazil national team at under-20 level. He joined Arsenal in 2006 from Sao Paulo and has vowed not to return to his native country until he plays for the international team. He has yet to maintain a regular place in the starting line-up since joining the Gunners but has produced some decent displays when called upon over the last two seasons. Denilson is a dedicated professional with plenty of natural ability and self belief. He moves the ball around well in the midfield and has good positional sense for a player of his age, he`ll be pushing for a regular place in the side during the 2008/09 season.
