Arsenal still fighting Napoli for Gabriel

Napoli continue to face competition from Arsenal for Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes, according to reports in France.

The Partenopei had emerged over the last few days as outright favourites for the 22-year-old Brazilian centre-back.

However, maintain this evening that Arsenal are still in the running and keeping a close eye on the situation.

The asking price for Gabriel is €30m and Napoli would see him as a suitable heir to Kalidou Koulibaly.

He joined Lille in January 2017, although there were loan spells at Troyes and Dinamo Zagreb.

Gabriel has made 34 competitive appearances for Lille this season, scoring one goal.
