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.

Man City too cheap on Koulibaly

Sky Sport Italia insist Manchester City’s offer for Kalidou Koulibaly won’t go above €65m and the defender simply will not be sold at that price.

Koulibaly’s comments in recent days confirm that he could be on the market for the right fee, which is believed to be €75-80m.

If that kind of proposal does not arrive, then the Senegal international is in absolutely no rush to leave Naples.

According to today’s report from Sky Sport Italia, the bid from Manchester City is only €65m and considered entirely unacceptable.
