Wantaway striker Jose Antonio Reyes has urged Arsenal to resolve his future without delay so that he can continue with the rest of his career.
The Spain international spent last season on loan at Real Madrid after revealing his unhappiness at life in London.
But Reyes was restricted to a bit-part role in Real's Spanish league triumph and seems unlikely to make a permanent move to the Bernabeau.
However, the 23-year-old former Sevilla forward is desperate to quit the Gunners and is hoping a move can be engineered before the start of the new campaign.
"No agreement has been reached so far," admitted Reyes.
"But I hope the situation will be resolved as soon as possible for my benefit.
"Next season I hope to win everything - and if it's with Real Madrid even better."
