EPL: Gabriel Magalhaes to give Arsenal, Man United his words


The emerging report claims that Brazilian defender Gabriel Magalhaes is set to make a final decision over his would-be destination later this week.

Gabriel Magalhaes is wanted at Arsenal and Man United with the two clubs hoping to snap him up this summer transfer window as they seek to reinforce and add depth to their teams.

It is now claimed that the 22-year-old will give a YES and No response, each to a club so as to complete a move away from the French Ligue 1 outfit, Lille.

Gabriel Magalhaes has been valued by Lille for £27 million, a fee the Gunners and the Red Devils will be willing and able to pay especially for a player with such quality.

The North London outfit, Arsenal have reportedly held talks with Gabriel Magalhaes’ camp and were impressed with expectations that he would prefer the Emirates Stadium to the Old Trafford.

Should Arsenal get a YES and Man United, a No, manager Mikel Arteta will enjoy the combination of new recruit William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes in the defence.

However, the Gunners are hoping to sell some players to be able to capture other deals and the same is expected of Man United who are hoping to do big deals this summer transfer window.
