Gunners star moves to Greece to make way for Arsha !

Arsenal veteran Gilberto Silva looks set for a move away from the Emirates this week to Greek outfit Panathanaikos as the Londoners look to secure the signature of Russian midfielder Andrei Arshavin.

The 31 year joined the Gunners in 2002 and played a vital part in the club's success. However this season he has struggled to break into the first eleven with the presence of Mathieu Flamini and Cesc Fabregas. Despite Flamini's departure from the club this Summer, Samir Nasri has come in as a replacement and could even be followed by Andrei Arshavin in the next few weeks.

Gilberto is expected to complete a move to Greece on Wednesday when he returns from holidays. Everton were also rumoured to be in the hunt for the Brazilian but still remain as outsiders to capture the Gunners number 19.
