Gabriel picks between Napoli and Arsenal

Lille have reportedly accepted offers from Napoli and Arsenal for Gabriel, so now it’s up to the defender to make a decision.

President Gerard Lopez confirmed to BBC Sport that the player would be leaving this summer, expecting a choice “this week, or next week at the latest. He is leaving, we’ve given the OK for that.”

Although Everton and Manchester United were also mentioned, in France insist it’s a two-horse race between Napoli and Arsenal.

These two clubs have battled before over Lille players, most notably Nicolas Pepe and Victor Osimhen.

Including various bonuses and add-ons, the total sum payable is close to €30m, although the actual cash sum is more akin to €20m, according to the Italian papers.

Gabriel is being given the choice between the two clubs and is expected to make his decision over the next few days.
