Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Julio Cesar, a reported target for Arsenal, has revealed he is expecting to leave Loftus Road in the summer transfer window following the club's relegation from the Premier League.

The 33-year-old Brazil international has been one of the only consistent performers for QPR this season, but was unable to prevent the west London club from dropping out of the top-flight.

Cesar is unsure what the future holds for him beyond the end of the current campaign, but is sure it will be away from QPR following discussions with the club's manager Harry Redknapp.

"It is confidential. My future today is a question mark," Cesar told Sportv.

"I have three more years on my contract, but the manager has already made it clear that it will be hard for me to stay at the club. I am happy he thinks that way, it is a sign that my work is being recognised.

"I dedicated as much as I could to QPR."

He added: "[Harry Redknapp] had told me that I wouldn't start any more games as I won't be staying at the club. He said he would select other goalkeepers. I accepted his decision, there is no problem.

"Now he has asked me to play the last game, and that makes me happy. I will try to play well and do my best."

Cesar has been linked with a transfer to Arsenal during the summer months as Arsene Wenger reportedly strives to recruit a more reliable alternative to current No.1 Wojciech Szczesny.

Along with Cesar, the Gunners are also reported to be tracking Victor Valdes of Barcelona - who has outlined his intention to leave the Camp Nou - and out-of-favour Spain captain Iker Casillas.
