GILBERTO SILVA will hold showdown talks with Arsene Wenger when he returns from his holiday in Brazil and the midfielder has not ruled out a move away from the Emirates.

The Brazil captain lost his place in the side last year to Mathieu Flamini, and despite the Frenchman departing for AC Milan this summer, Gilberto remains uncertain about his future at the club.

Speaking from his hometown of Lagoa de Pratta, the 31-year-old said: "I will sit down with Arsene Wenger when I come back for pre-season training and see whether I have a future at the club.

"I want to play for Arsenal, but if they don't want me I will have to leave. It's really up to the manager what happens now."
