Arsenal legend Gilberto Silva has revealed that manager Arsene Wenger has asked him to return to the club in a coaching capacity.
The Brazilian midfielder, an ever-present in the Gunners' famous 'Invincibles' season a decade ago, claims that Wenger is keen to re-sign him to his backroom staff.
In an interview with Globo Esporte, the 38-year-old - who has not yet retired - said: "I have had an invitation, yes.
"Anything is possible, it makes me happy when you have these invitations, people see you with a different profile, you can contribute.
"It makes me happy and motivated, and it makes me want to learn from others, seek knowledge and develop my own style."
Gilberto left Arsenal in 2008 after six years in London to join Greek giants Panathanikos, before returning to his homeland with spells at Gremio and Atletico Mineiro. He is currently without a club.
