Juventus refusing to give up on signing Arsenal star

Gabriel’s future at Arsenal is in doubt, as this club is willing to go to any length to secure him.

Is Gabriel Magalhaes a player worth keeping? I ask this question because of a fascinating report on the Brazilian defender’s future at Arsenal. Apparently, Juventus’ interest in the Arsenal defender isn’t going away, and the Italian giants are keeping a close eye on him in the hope of getting a chance to sign him.

According to CMW, that opportunity appears to have presented itself. Arsenal is reportedly set to sign free-agent defender Evan Ndicka from Bayer Leverkusen at the end of the season.

If this deal goes through as planned, Gabriel could be allowed to leave for Juventus on a player-plus-cash deal. In exchange for Gabriel, Juventus is willing to offer Arsenal their old flame, Arthur Melo, as well as a cash offer.

So, how likely is this transaction? Arsenal has long admired Melo, and with their midfield in desperate need of reinforcement, offering Melo as part of an offer to Gabriel could be appealing. Do Arsenal, on the other hand, really need to sell Gabriel, a player who has appeared in almost every game this season? I don’t see the point.

Even with Ndicka joining, Gabriel does not have to leave. Big clubs have large squads. Arsenal is “going big,” and having Ndicka and Gabriel compete for a starting spot is just one example of how massive Arteta’s project is becoming.

      1. dgr8xt this swapping or transfer would make absolutely no sense and I will tell you why:

        1) Gabriel Magalhaes has the most Aerial presence in our defense and by extension our entire team.

        2) He is the most physical defender in our team
        3) He is the only left footed defender in our team and the most season in our squad by extension.
        4) Quality left footed defenders are the most difficult defenders to come by.

        5) There is strong indications from now on he will be part of the Brazilian team set up that argues well for his future.

        6) Last but not the least, he’s one of the gaffer hand pick players and history tells a lot about that and future dealings.

        The gaffer maybe even trying to preserve him by bringing in a deputy, maybe one Evan Ndicka

        1. Spot on, even though I think dgr8xt was just been sarcastic. Another point is the fact that he renewed without much hassle may just make him our most important CB. Having such a loyal and rare kind of quality CB on a long contract put us in a good position to negotiate with other CBs

  1. He’s just got a new contract worth lots & lots of money, WTF would we swap him for anybody + some cash that Juventus ain’t got… He’s gonna win the Premiership, probably be the defender with the most goals.. Saka, Martinelli & Saliba will sign new long term contracts too… If Ndicka joins that’s his direct competition.. we need that!

  2. Melo again, that dead horse has been beaten, reincarnated, died and beaten again.

    I almost miss the old Benzema rumors if only to to remove the foul stench of this Melo one.
