The 29-year-old left-back, who joined The Gunners from Turkish outfit Fenerbahce for around £6.5 million just 18 months ago, has only featured on the odd occasion this season and after his embarrassing half-time shirt swap with former Gunner Robin van Persie at Old Trafford a few months ago, the Brazilian looks set to leave The Emirates in the upcoming January transfer window at a cut-price.

Arsenal are looking to recoup at least £5 million for the stocky defender in January, but this may prove a tough task for Arsene Wenger and co.

Personally, I don’t think any team out there will pay over £5 mill, let alone £3 million, for Santos.

I believe only two teams have registered their interest in the Brazil international, that being Galatasaray and former club Fenerbahce. So I say sell him to the highest bidder.

He is not good enough for Arsenal, thus he must be sold next month…even if we make a loss!
