The agent of Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes appears to confirm that his client is set to join Arsenal after turning down a more lucrative offer from Manchester United.

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.

Gabriel was also wanted by Manchester United and Napoli, but his agent Guilherme Miranda has reportedly confirmed that he turned down more lucrative bids to join Arsenal instead.

Gabriel is expected to put pen to paper on a five-year deal worth £80,000 per week at the Emirates Stadium.
