Is Gabriel Magalhaes on his way to Arsenal?


Arsenal fans have been left happy after a claim by French Ligue 1 outfit, Lille president that Gabriel Magalhaes will be leaving the club this summer window as they already have an offer with him.

The North London outfit has made Gabriel Magalhaes their top target for the defensive department and manager Mikel Arteta is desperate for his partnership with William Saliba in the coming season.

However, it is yet unclear if Gabriel Magalhaes will be coming to Arsenal despite the confirmation that he is leaving Lille this window because of the several stories already being reported.

It would be recalled that a report claimed Gabriel Magalhaes has already had a gentleman agreement with Italian Serie A outfit, Napoli, making Naples his likely destination.

Other reports still go in favour of the English Premier League club as it claimed that the Gunners are willing to hand a better deal to Lille and Gabriel Magalhaes to be able to win the race.

Lille president has already noted that the player will have to make his decision and his destination is expected to be known in the coming days.

This development means the player has his decision to make but Arsenal can still stand the chance if they can be convincing enough.
