Arsène Wenger believes Denilson is underrated.
The Arsenal manager is highly-delighted to have secured the 19-year-old Brazilian midfielder on a new long-term deal with the Club. For Wenger, it demonstrates the giant strides he has made since signing from Sao Paulo on transfer-deadline day last August.
"I am pleased, very pleased," he said. "Denilson is a great player. For me, he is underrated. He does not get all the praise his performances suggest but that will come very quickly.
"He is the youngest player of our squad along with Armand Traore. He has played big games but he has shown he can cope with the pressure and produce quality performances. I expect him to make a big impact."
