Andre Santos: Thought to be heading home to Brazil

Andre Santos: Thought to be heading home to Brazil

The 29-year-old arrived at Arsenal in 2011 in a £6.8million move from Fenerbahce but has fallen down the pecking order at the Emirates.

Kieran Gibbs has been Arsene Wenger's first-choice at left-back this term and the arrival of Spaniard Nacho Monreal in the transfer window has further reduced Santos' chances of selection.

There has been no official comment from Arsenal regarding Santos' exit, but he is believed to be on the brink of signing for Brazilian side Gremio.

Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski earlier posted on Twitter: "@Andre--santos27 We will miss you man, I wish u all the very best #Gunner God bless you."

It is unclear whether the transfer will be permanent or a loan move.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
