Wellington Silva confident kicking off Arsenal career

Wellington Silva expects to kickoff his Arsenal career next season.

The 22-year-old signed for the Gunners in 2010 from Brazilian outfit Fluminense.

But due to work permit difficulties, he has been sent to Spanish sides Levante, Alcoyano, Ponferradina, Murcia and Almeria in a bid to meet the requirements to receive a visa.

He told Sambafoot.com: "It's a dream for me to play there. Arsenal is a great club.

"Unfortunately this was not possible because of these administrative concerns. But I think I'm ready now, I learned a lot in Spain. Including playing without the ball.

"If all goes well, I'll be out there next season."
