Gabriel’s dad likes Instagram post suggesting that his son has joined Arsenal

Gabriel Magalhaes seems to be closing in on joining Arsenal from Lille.

The Brazilian has been on Arsenal’s radar for some time now as Mikel Arteta seeks to rebuild the Arsenal team.

The Gunners made great improvement under the Spaniard before the end of the season, however, they still struggled at the back with defending and they want to address that in this transfer window.

They have been linked with a move for the likes of Dayot Upamecamo and Gabriel this summer, but as they struggle to get the Frenchman from RB Leipzig, they have turned their attention to Gabriel.

The defender is reportedly close to signing for the Gunners after they beat Napoli to land him, but there has been no official confirmation of the transfer yet.

However, rumours have been flying around and one of the latest rumour is from aftvmedia and they posted a mocked-up image of the Brazilian in an Arsenal jersey and they captioned the image as reported by the Star:

“Arsenal have reached an agreement with Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes and are close to agreeing a deal with the club.”

Some eagle-eyed fan who follows the defender’s father on Instagram saw that Marcelo Magalhaes liked the post.

    I think Aubamenyang signing a new deal will be officially announced when he comes back from his holiday.

    I also think Arsenal will wrap the signing of Gabriel from Lille.

    Then we probably see some players go.. we have two more signings to go.

    A partey signing or an equivalent.
    Also ceballos or a similar player.

    Fingers cross, CoyG’

      I hope so on all Uzi.

      can’t believe we’ll actually be a pretty BIG team again….. loads of 6ft+ guys potentially in the first team

      1. Uzi Ozil says:

        Yes Val. Fingers crossed. We gon have a decent window. Top 4 is reachable and of course a trophy again wont hurt 😊

      hope we can get in an extra midfielder too. Not enough goals from midfield and we had a lot times that our midfield did not create chances.

    Peps way and now it seems Artetas way is open straight forward honesty and common sense along with undoubted talent.
    As a fan i am beginning to see a plan taking shape it’s so nice after all the ballshit we have endured from Gazitas,the well meaning but out of touch Wenger and others.
    Even the Kronkes seem to believe in Arteta so far he has been amazing !

    If we can sign Gabriel to partner Saliba and add partey, I think we will be title contenders. The spine goes from under sized, unathletic and error prone to aggressive, dynamic and dominant. I also think Pepe is going to have a breakout season. All this assumes auba signs which I think we all feel he will. COYFG!

      1. Mulenga Moseni says:
