How Napoli plan to cheat Arsenal in chase of Gabriel Magalhaes


Arsenal and Napoli are both front runners in the chase of Brazilian defender, Gabriel Magalhaes from French Ligue 1 club Lille but the Italian Serie A outfit are doing all it takes to cheat the English Premier League outfit.

Both clubs are reported to have agreed on a deal with the French Ligue 1 club but the player has the decision to make by weighing up all the options presented by Arsenal and Napoli.

The latest report now claims that the Naples club have already increased Gabriel Magalhaes’ offer with a “big salary” to lure him into agreeing on a deal to fly over to Naples.

It is also reported that Gabriel Magalhaes favours a move to the English Premier League but he is now considering the offer of a “big salary” and that could influence his decision at the end of the day.

However, the player is expected to make his decision this week and give his words to both clubs for a deal to be completed at the end of the week.

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta is keen on a left-footed central defender and has identified Gabriel Magalhaes as the best fit. Should he complete the move, he is expected to form a good partnership with new recruit, William Saliba.
