Fiorentina midfielder Felipe Melo has declared that he is happy to hear of interest from Arsenal, but insists that his immediate future lies out of his hands.
The 25-year-old has already turned out for seven clubs during his career and only joined his current employers from Spanish minnows Almeria during the close-season.
However, with reports of admiring glances being cast by Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, the Brazilian may well be on the move once again - but only if Fiorentina wish to cash in.
"My agent has told me there is a big club interested in acquiring me. It's a nice feeling," admitted Melo.
"For me Arsenal is more prestigious than Chelsea.
"But I have four years left on my contract with Fiorentina and I am a Fiorentina player.
"The future is in the hands of God. I only have to think about doing my job well."
