AC Milan and Juventus are ready to pounce for unsettled Arsenal midfielder Gilberto Silva.

Brazil's Terra says there is a 90 per cent prospect that Gilberto will be playing in Serie A next season, with Milan and Juve waiting to take him off Arsenal's hands.

Sources close to Gilberto say he favours a move to Italy over Spain or remaining in England, should he leave the Emirates at the end of the season.
