The 24-year-old has established himself as the club's number one this season following an injury to Wojciech Szczesny, but he has revealed that his future lies in Italy.
"I want to be Arsenal's number one. In the future I'd return to Italy and play in Serie A, perhaps with AC Milan, my favourite team. Besides, I hope to reach the national call," he told Corriere della Sera.
Mannone has made 11 league appearances for the Gunners.
