Arsenal reportedly win the race for Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes, who will officially join the Premier League club next week.

Arsenal have reportedly won the battle for Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes, with the Brazilian set to fly to London next week to officially complete a move.

The 22-year-old's future has been the subject of much speculation in recent days amid suggestions that Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City had all joined the Gunners in the race.

However, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, the deal to take Gabriel to the Emirates Stadium 'is finally done', and he will head to London on Monday to sign a five-year contract with Mikel Arteta's side.

Taking to Twitter to reveal the news, Romano claims that the Premier League giants will pay €30m (£27m), including add-ons, for the South American, with an official announcement due to arrive next week.

Gabriel made 34 appearances for his Ligue 1 side last term, including six outings in the Champions League.

Arsenal have also recently completed the signing of Brazilian attacker Willian on a free transfer from Chelsea as the club prepare for the start of the 2020-21 Premier League season.
