Wellington Silva: Ready to stake a claim for a place at Arsenal in 2014/15

Wellington Silva: Ready to stake a claim for a place at Arsenal in 2014/15

The Gunners swooped for the Brazilian starlet in January 2010, acquiring his services from Fluminense.

Arsene Wenger made his move in the understanding that Silva would be granted a visa by FIFA, but no paperwork was processed.

Arsenal have therefore been forced to send the highly-rated forward out on loan - with spells taken in at Spanish outfits Levante, Alcoyano, Ponferradina and now Murcia.

Silva believes he will shortly be granted a European passport, freeing him to stake a claim for a place in Wenger's plans for 2014/15.

He told Lancenet: "The process to the get the passport is already under way.

"The Spanish law says that to request the documents you have to have been here two years. In January 2014, it will be three years so I think they will be ready.

"The pre-season in England starts in July and I'll have a passport by then.

"I hope to have the opportunity to achieve my dream of playing for Arsenal. The team is strong and I hope to fit in well."

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
