CL giants aiming to hold talks with Arsenal over transfer of key player

Posted by

Arsenal are reportedly facing fresh transfer interest in key defender Gabriel Magalhaes ahead of the summer.

The Brazilian centre-back has been an important player for Arsenal since joining them from Lille last season, and his performances recently saw him linked as a target for Barcelona by ESPN.

It now seems Juventus are also very interested in Gabriel, with Gianluca Di Marzio reporting that the Serie A giants are aiming to enter into talks over a potential deal.

Di Marzio’s report adds that Juve are aware that there could also be a useful factor in their favour, with Arsenal known to be interested in signing Arthur Melo from them.

Most Gunners fans, however, would surely not see that kind of exchange deal as good business, with Gabriel far too important to Mikel Arteta’s defence.

The 24-year-old has formed a solid partnership with Ben White this season, and is young enough that he can probably still keep on improving in years to come.

That will make him an attractive option for the likes of Barcelona and Juventus, but if Arsenal are serious about becoming title challengers again, they can’t be losing players like this.

  1. What other clubs must bear in mind is that Arsenal are in the process of rebuilding not time to sell there prized access so Barcelona or Juventus should look elsewhere for now Arsenal has no player to sell unless those there contracts has expired even as that not all of the expired players contract will leave such as Elneny, Holding and Eddie Nketia are not going anywhere so let them enquirers somewhere thank you.

  2. If Arsenal cant compete for the epl,then dont bother buying players.
    Once upon atime it was among Europes top 5 clubs but have dropped to 12/13 since then.
    Top teams regularly buy the bezt players from other teams to weaken them.Rvp is a good example.

  3. From my perspective Mikel is doing a wonderful job – building a young hungry team. It is vital that all are on board at the club. No player is bigger than the club – Auba an example unfortunately – and I trust the club to build harmony within the ranks. I love the present squad and would be happy for all to remain whilst we might add a couple of new faces. My concern is the fragility of Tierney and Partey – both excellent players – I just hope they don’t turn out like Diaby.
