Thiago Silva in direct Ancelotti, Arteta contact about Everton, Arsenal options

Departing PSG captain Thiago Silva is in direct contact with the managers of Arsenal and Everton.

It's been confirmed by PSG that Thiago Silva will leave the club at the end of the season - he is currently finalising a short-term deal to cover the French Cup final and remainder of the Champions League.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has called the player directly in recent days - after being given Thiago's number by Gunners defender David Luiz - and discussed a move to North London.

And Le 10 Sport reports Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti did the same early in June, making it clear to Thiago that he wished to work with his former PSG captain again.

For his part, Thiago now favours continuing his career in England, though will wait to make a final decision regarding which club.
