Brazil captain Gilberto has confirmed he will look for a move from Arsenal in the summer if he cannot get more regular first-team football.
The 31-year-old midfielder has started just five times in the Premier League this season as Mathieu Flamini and Cesc Fabregas have cemented the central midfield places at Arsenal.
“At the moment I cannot see any future for me at the club,” he told The Guardian.
“I will see what will happen in the next few months and until the end (of the season), if I will get the chance to come back in the team. If not, I will see what I am going to do at the end.
“It’s been painful for me and to stay another season like this would kill me. I will sit down with Arsene and see what we can do to manage the situation.
“I am not happy in the position I am in but I am trying to manage the situation.”
