Sao Paulo are optimistic regarding their chances of turning Denilson's loan move from Arsenal into a permanent stay.

While keen on keeping Denilson in his homeland, Sao Paulo have moved to distance themselves from reports suggesting they want to bring Josue home from German outfit Wolfsburg. Lopes added: "There is no negotiation going on and we first heard that he could be coming here from the press."
