A number of names have been mentioned to be on the wanted list of both Man United and Arsenal ahead of the summer transfer window with reports claiming that they will battle to win the signatures.

Daily Record claims that Gabriel Magalhaes has joined the list of players that will force the Red Devils and the Gunners into transfer battle this summer transfer window.

Most Premier League sides are heading into the summer transfer market for defensive players and managers of both clubs, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Mikel Arteta are not left out.

Arsenal have suffered a lack of depth this season which has cost them a lot of points as well as Champions League football and the former Man City assistant manager seeks to correct that in the summer transfer window.

For Man United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is already planning to part ways with some players to make room for more defensive options that will help his team to challenge, should they finally secure a Champions League spot for next season.

Meanwhile, the fee for Gabriel Magalhaes has not been mentioned by the French Ligue 1 club Lille but he has been valued around £22.5 million which could be negotiated by the two teams.
