Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo has confirmed that he will make a decision on his future ‘soon’ and admits he’s ‘proud’ to attract interest from the likes of Arsenal and Celtic.

Bravo has made just 17 appearances under Pep Guardiola over the last two seasons and looks destined for the exit door at the Etihad this summer.

The 37-year-old’s contract is due to expire at the end of next month and a number of clubs have been linked in recent days, with the experienced shot-stopper available on a free transfer.

Arsenal have reportedly been considering a move for Bravo following Bernd Leno’s knee injury and the Chilean has refused to rule out joining one of City’s Premier League rivals.

‘There is nowhere in the world I would not consider playing,’ Bravo told TVN.

‘I’ve read the names of the clubs that have been linked with me and I regard that as an honour because they are very good clubs.

‘I’m proud that I have attracted interest from the clubs mentioned.

‘What I and my family are looking for is a club with stability and a comfortable environment to live.

‘It depends on several factors, it depends on the club and the project that the club has.

‘I will consider all my options and make a decision soon.’

Arsenal identified Bravo as a possible option between the sticks in the wake of Leno’s horrendous-looking injury during the side’s 2-1 defeat at Brighton.

But the north London outfit may cool their interest in Bravo after it became clear that Leno’s knee problem was not as serious as initially feared.

‘We thought [Leno’s injury] was going to be more significant,’ Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta said.

‘We are not sure on the extent still but he is feeling positive.’

The Gunners are hopeful the Germany international could even return to first-team training in the next four to six weeks.
