Sao Paulo intend to keep hold of on-loan Arsenal midfielder Denilson.

Denilson has spent almost two years away in Brazil.

Sao Paulo vice-president Joao Paulo de Jesus Lopes said: "Certainly we are interested in this player, we will need to talk about this later.

"There still remains 60 days to the end of the loan, we need to understand how much he could cost the operation."
