Italian club working on alternative in case Arsenal wants too much money

Arsenal has been handed a boost in their bid to keep Gabriel Magalhaes amidst interest from Juventus.

The defender joined the Gunners in 2020 and he quickly became an indispensable member of their first team.

Mikel Arteta began building his defence around the former Lille man and added Ben White to the group last season.

The Englishman and Gabriel nearly helped Arsenal to make a return to the Champions League at the end of the campaign.

Although that never happened, he remains a key man at the Emirates, but he has admirers.

Juventus has been the keenest to add him to their squad and the Italians are really pushing to sign him.

However, Arsenal is adamant that they want to keep him unless a big money offer arrives.

This has forced the Old Lady to consider another defender, with The Sun claiming they are now eyeing Pau Torres of Villarreal.

The Spaniard will be cheaper and the report says they will sign him instead of paying too much money for Gabriel.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Gabriel is indispensable to us at the moment and it will be a major setback to lose him in the summer.

The defender has created good chemistry at the back with White, and we cannot afford to lose him.

  1. Why do u keep posting this ridiculous non story.Drummed up by the pro Juve Italian media.we’ve never entertained selling him & certainly not for the laughable figures under £40 million or Melo.That is taking the piss.keep up & stop doing their work for them.

  2. Juventus is not signing Gabriel. They have agreed a deal with Torino for their Brazilian CB. They know they can’t afford Gabriel even if Arsenal wanted to sell.

  3. This kind of rumour casts Arsenal in the role of being a smaller club that Juventus, which is probably part of what the Italians are trying to do.
