Arsenal 'will sign Gabriel Magalhaes on five-year deal from Lille'

Arsenal have been very cautious about the possibility of celebrating the arrival of Gabriel Magalhaes because it was reported that Napoli had entered into the race for the signature of the Brazilian worldwide at the last moment hence complicating the transfer for the gunners but it's now been confirmed that he has chosen Mikel Arteta's side despite the interest from the Italian side.

Apart from Arsenal, clubs like Manchester United and Everton have also shown an interest in signing the 22-year-old but right now they are far behind in the queue.

Arsenal have spent the last few weeks in negotiations with Lille and Gabriel Magalhaes as this is the centre back that Mikel Arteta has made a decision to bring to the Emirates Stadium this summer as he continues to revamp his squad ahead of the upcoming season.

"I think he has narrowed it down", Lille operator Lopez advised TalkSport now.

The club manager, Mikel Arteta has identified defence as a major weakness in the club, he wants to play a more expansive style of football next term and he believes that Gabriel along with William Saliba - will allow him to play a higher line. We have specified him a good deal of time to make up his mind. "We've talked about where he should go, but at the end of the day he and his environment make a choice and we support that".

Gabriel's team-mate, Jose Fonte, has meanwhile claimed the player has been asking questions about the Premier League and life in England. He started all of their matches in the Champions League, including their two fixtures against Chelsea and will join former Lille forward Nicolas Pepe at the Emirates.

Earlier today, Lopez said he expected a decision from Gabriel within the next 24 hours.

The Brazilian U20 worldwide played a key role in helping Lille qualify for the Europa League next season but he could now form a partnership alongside William Saliba at Arsenal next year after he arrived from Saint-Etienne.
