If reports from Sky Sports are to be believed, then the news is expected anytime soon for the capture of Man United, Arsenal, and Everton target, Gabriel Magalhaes.

Gabriel Magalhaes has been on the radar of a number of English Premier League, having shown great prospects and impressed for his Ligue 1 club in the just-concluded season.

It was earlier reported that Everton already gave a trial to Gabriel Magalhaes before the lockdown and have agreed on a deal with medicals already conducted.

However, the deal now seems to be an open one with Arsenal and Man United also heavily linked to the 22-year-old and are both keen to land him this summer window.

Sky Sports reports that the representative of the player is already in England to finalize a deal for his client who is interested in a move from the French Ligue 1 to the English Premier League.

The reports also add that Lille will be requesting for £27 million for the signature of Gabriel Magalhaes and are hoping that it succeeds as they have already lined up Ajax centre-back Sven Botman as his replacement.

In case a deal has not been finalized with the Toffees for Gabriel Magalhaes, both Arsenal and Man United will stand the chance of convincing him ahead of Everton.
