Reportedly, Arsenal seeking to have a contract with Lille Central Defender Gabriel Magalhaes on demand.
The 22-year-old has received permission to leave the Stade Pierre Mauroy this summer if the right offer is made.
The Brazilian defender has been targeted by several clubs including Napoli rumored to have been on the brink of signing him as a direct replacement for Kalidou Koulibaly.
Clubs believed to be weighing up bids are Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, and Everton, but The Telegraph maintains that Arsenal is now closing down on Gabriel’s signing of an agreement worth around £27m.
The same report shows that skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is also on the verge of penning new terms at the Emirate Stadium in a huge double boost for the Gunners.
