Andre Santos: Arsenal defender is attracting interest from Turkey, where he played for Fenerbahce
Arsenal defender Andre Santos has confirmed a number of Turkish clubs have enquired about his possible availability.
Santos joined Arsenal from Fenerbahce in 2011, but has struggled to make an impact during his time at Emirates Stadium.
The defender has played down reports linking him with a return to his native Brazil as he still retains the desire to play regular football in Europe.
He told iG: "My idea is to stay in Europe. I want to keep playing, wherever it might be.
"I still have many objectives on this continent, some clubs from Turkey have called me, but there is nothing concrete.
"If there is any interest from Sao Paulo, we'll talk as I'm professional, but there was nothing."
Meanwhile, Santos still believes Arsenal can finish top of the Premier League, despite sitting 10 points behind leaders Manchester United.
He said: "The team are doing very well, we are very confident that we can finish in first place in the Premier League.
"There are 20 rounds to be played, it's only the beginning, a lot will happen."
