Reports have come out and revealed that highly-rated Brazilian striker Wellington Silva is on his way to Almeria next season.
The attacker has been forced to spend time out on loan since joining Arsenal in January 2010 from Fluminense due to work permit issues.
Now the player’s agent, Alex Soares, has confirmed Silva will spend next season at Almeria before returning to Arsenal for the 2015/16 season.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said: “A deal has been agreed between Arsenal and Almeria for Wellington Silva to go on loan for the season.
“He had the choice to go to a number of teams in Spain, but Silva has decided to join Almeria.
“He will fly to Spain next week to complete the paperwork to join Almeria for next season.
“We are hopeful that, after this loan at Almeria, Silva will be able to return to play for Arsenal and they will monitor his progress in Spain next season.”
