Arsenal refused to do Inter Milan business over Gilberto

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger refused to release Gilberto Silva in a swap offer from Inter Milan for Adriano, it has been revealed.

"We don't need Adriano," Wenger said. " And they [Inter] wanted one of our squad. I won't tell you who but we'd have lost a player we didn't want to lose. That has nothing to do with the quality of Adriano."

It's thought the player in question was Gilberto Silva, says the Independent.
