Arsenal beat Napoli to Gabriel

According to Sky Sport Italia, Arsenal will sign Lille defender Gabriel, because Napoli cannot move for him unless Kalidou Koulibaly is sold first.

The Brazilian is available for €28m and Lille President Gerard Lopez confirmed this week he will be leaving, although the destination has not yet been chosen.

That is because Arsenal have matched Napoli’s offer, with the same personal terms too, so the decision is up to the centre-back.

Sky Sport Italia are reporting this evening that Gabriel will accept the Arsenal offer.
