Man Utd and Arsenal compete for Magalhaes
Gabriel Magalhaes has attracted the interest of five different clubs, including Arsenal and two Premier League teams.
Premier League teams include Manchester United, who want to add elite qualities to the position of £ 80m partner Harry Maguire, and Everton, who were very close to Gabriel’s signing in a £ 20m deal. earlier this year, with the Brazilian who had also visited their training camp before the blockade.
Arsenal are also eager to sign a central defender. William Saliba will arrive after his one-year loan in Saint-Étienne, but the Gunners are looking for a long-term partner for the Frenchman to solve their defensive problems.
Gabriel has performed well for Lille this season, but to sign the 22-year-old Arsenal will first have to unload many of his old and underperforming defenders, including Sokratis.
French champions Paris Saint-Germain and the Italian national team also closely monitor Gabriel’s situation.
