The agent of Lille centre-back Gabriel Magalhaes has all but confirmed that his client is on the verge of completing a move to Arsenal.
The 22-year-old underwent a medical at Arsenal's training ground yesterday and confirmation of the £27m deal is expected to arrive soon.
Guilherme Miranda (agent of Gabriel Magalhaes) tells me:— Freddie Paxton (@Freddie_Paxton) August 24, 2020
"Arsenal was nowhere near the best proposal [money wise]. Gabriel chose them over more lucrative offers because Edu convinced us of the project. It's 100% because of Edu Gaspar and Arteta."
Gabriel is expected to put pen to paper on a five-year deal worth £80,000 per week at the Emirates Stadium.
