Arsenal is the favoured club for target that Manchester United also wants

Gabriel Magalhaes wants to join Arsenal after being impressed by the club’s proposal after he held talks with them.

The Brazilian defender is one of the most sought-after players in Europe at the moment after his fine showings for Lille in France and in Europe.

The French club has already agreed to sell him this summer, and there is no shortage of takers.

He has held talks with a number of teams and he has chosen Arsenal as the team that he wants to join after he held talks with the club, according to GetfootballnewsFrance.

The talks with the Gunners was reportedly held this week, and it left the Brazilian impressed enough to decide that he will join them among other teams.

Everton, Manchester United and Napoli are the other teams looking to sign him this summer as well.

Sun Sports claims that Manchester United are not giving up on signing him and the Red Devils remain intent on beating Arsenal to his signature.

Mikel Arteta will want to improve his defence in the transfer window, as that has been a problem spot for his team for much of his tenure so far.

Gabriel is just 22 and the Brazilian will benefit from being managed by Arteta who has been good with young players so far.

    Well well sky sport are reporting aubameyang is close to signing new contract and willian is also close. Keep the good news coming.

    As much as I’d love the lad to come in, I can’t see this happening without moving some other defenders on. If the club is in as much financial trouble as we’re being led to believe, we can’t afford to have 7 CBs on our books. Loans for the likes of Chambers and Holding with wages paid in full would be a quick but necessary fix.

    1. RSH says:

      I think we will finish up personal terms, and then be forced to sit on the signing until we get rid of someone. Unfortunately that means someone else can scoop him. But yeah for sure we must sell before buying yet another CB.

      Even though Arsenal currently
      have 7 CB’s on the books only
      Luiz, Saliba, Soctatis, and Holding
      will be fit(hopefully) for the
      beginning of next season. CC, Mari
      and Mustafi will be spectators until
      October @ the earliest.

      With Arsenals predictable injury
      record singing Gabriel IMHO is an
      absolute necessity in this window.

    Well we managed to agree a deal for Pepe with Lille last season,we could do the same with Gabriel,relations between the 2 clubs seem pretty good no?but 7CB’s,we need to sell and Mustafa injured, can’t see anyone buying an injured player(I am excluding us of course!)

    Sok *
    Luiz
    Saliba
    Mari
    Mustafi
    CC
    Holding*
    Mavs – on loan
    * i think will go this window, I’d be very surprised if we were to get shot of anymore other than Kola who’s a LB in the changing room kinda guy

    1. ACE says:

      You realize that Holding, Socratis,
      and Luiz are the ONLY experienced
      Arsenal CB’s that, barring a
      pre season injury, will be fit for the
      beginning of next years EPL season.

      I personally dont rate RH, and SP is
      way past his best but if both are
      moved on this month than MA will
      need to bring in both Gabriel and
      Malang Sarr to have suitable
      numbers at the position to start
      the season. Although the talent
      @ CB would be greatly improved
      of the top four to feature only old
      man Luiz would have kicked a ball
      in the EPL.

  5. Tanaka says:

    I think he is a good addition to our squad, we don’t lack quantity at that position rather we lack quality. Moving on Kola, Sok, Mustafi (he has had enough chances and time to prove himself and has failed most of the times) and either Holding or Chambers ( who have not really pushed to fulfill their potential its time for Medley and Mavro). Hope we get Partey too

  6. Wenger91 says:

    I guess with our list of Brazilian players he prefers to be alongside with them. I’ve never see him playing before but when I heard ManU are int to him I had the feeling that he will be good add to our team.
