Brazilian midfielder Wellington Silva will reportedly complete a loan move from Arsenal to Bolton Wanderers this week.
The 22-year-old, who has yet to play in a competitive match for the Gunners since his 2011 arrival from Fluminense, has already been loaned out five times.
Silva was sent out to Levante, Alcoyano, Ponferradina, Murcia and Almeria in order to secure a Spanish work permit.
Now that he has the necessary documentation to play in UK, Arsenal are keen for him to get a taste of English football.
According to Bild, Herta Berlin made an offer to take Silva on loan this summer, but the Gunners rejected it.
talkSPORT claim that Silva will instead join Bolton on a short-term deal.

Silva scored nine league goals during his various loan spells in Spain.
