Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar has dropped a big hint that he could be an Arsenal player next season after revealing that he is keen to stay in London despite wanting to leave relegated QPR.
Cesar, who joined QPR from Inter Milan last summer, does not want to play in the second-tier of English football, especially as the World Cup is next year - and he is pushing for a move away from Loftus Road, with the Emirates Stadium his likely destination.
Arsenal are not the only team interested in the Brazilian goalkeeper as Italian side AS Roma want to bring him back to Italy, but the 33-year-old has made it clear that he wants to stay in London.
Goal.com reported in June that Arsenal had already opened talks with QPR over a potential £1m move for the shot-stopper, who played in last night's Confederations Cup final, which saw Cesar's Brazil beat Spain 3-0.
Speaking after his Confederations Cup success, Cesar admitted that he now wants to return to England to sort out his future.
"Now I have to do things right at my club so I can be considered for the World Cup," the former Inter Milan 'keeper told reporters.
Cesar was then asked about his personal life and whether or not his family want to stay in London - and the goalkeeper admitted they did.
"Yes, me too," he continued, "I love the city and I'm enjoying living there."
The 33-year-old not only won the Confederations Cup last night in Brazil, he was also rewarded with the Golden Glove, an award that he was very happy to receive.
"I’m very happy for winning the Golden Glove," he added. "It’s a great award and it’s going to my collection."
