Sao Paulo chief Edu says Arsenal is still a popular destination for Brazilians.

Edu is a former Gunners favourite and back in London for talks over Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez.

"I know the Brazilian players at Arsenal very well, all the Brazilians follow them," he told "I follow Arsenal as well.

"Before he came to London, Andre spoke to me and asked me about Arsenal - and it's nice to see so many Brazilians here. If they are here maybe it is because me, Silvinho and Gilberto did something good."
