We're Not In Chelsea's Shadow
Arsenal youngster Denilson is eyeing a regular starting berth in Arsenal`s midfield.
The 19-year-old Brazilian arrived in the summer for around £3.4Million pounds and it would seem that it`s another case of Wenger waving his magic wand.
It was something of a surprising transfer, even in his native land. He had made only 4 appearances for Sao Paulo when Arsenal singed him but he has proved already that he could easily have been sold for double the fee paid for him.
He has made only a handful of appearances in the red and white shirt so far but he wants that to change soon.
'I am not here to be anyone's stand-in,' Denilson told The Times.
'I am working to achieve my place in the full team here.
'My focus isn't about being on the bench, it's about playing.
'Chelsea have some very good players, but our young players are not in their shadow.
'We're all growing and have what it takes to equal the other team and even get the better of them.'
