Bayern Munich's Gustavo: Of course I'd like to play for Arsenal

Bayern Munich midfielder Luiz Gustavo admits he would love to play for Arsenal but suggests he is currently in a 'delicate situation'.

The Gunners are extremely keen to lure the 26-year old Brazilian to the Emirates Stadium but it is not as clear-cut as simply packing up and leaving the Allianz Arena for Gustavo.

"My contract with Bayern runs until 2015 but it is very important that I play first-team football to keep getting called up for Brazil," Gustavo told reporters.

"I am in a very delicate situation at Bayern and this needs sorting out. I have personal and professional reasons to move.

"I have heard about the Arsenal interest. It's a big club we're talking about here so of course I'd like to play for them.

"Arsenal play a very attractive brand of football and are in the Champions League. They also have a very clever manager in Arsene Wenger.

"Even when Bayern beat them in the last Champions League [on aggregate] you could see they are not pushovers."
