Since sealing his move to the Emirates, the 22-year-old has been farmed out on loan five times and is currently on a season-long deal at Almeria.
Silva told Marca: "My agent told me recently because we are trying to sort out my renewal. I only have a year with Arsenal.
"I want to do pre-season there and I'm very happy about this news. But I am currently with Almeria and my thoughts are here. We have to achieve our goal of safety."
