The Brazilian international has pledged his long-term future to The Gunners by signing a contract that will keep him at Highbury until 2009.
The former Atletico Mineiro star has now set his sights on winning a regular place in the Brazil team after resolving his future with Arsenal.
"Now that I am calm with my situation at Arsenal my other objective is to win myself a place again in the national team," said Gilberto.
"I am happy with my situation at Arsenal because I really didn't want to leave this team.
"Something very important would have to happen to make me leave Arsenal, it would have to be a proposal much more important than the one I have and I don't know if that exists.
"The World Cup will be played in less than a year so it's important to be sure at your team so you work being calm and can dedicate yourself to play in the best way for the team because that will make the coach have me in mind again."
