Gabriel Magalhaes ‘undergoing Arsenal medical’ as Mikel Arteta wins transfer race
Latest Arsenal transfer update as they set to complete the signing of Gabriel Magalhaes with the defender set to undergo a medical today.
According to 6methodBlog sport news, Arsenal have won the race to land the in-demand Lille centre-back having agreed a £22.6million fee.
It is claimed they have now agreed a five-year deal with the 22-year-old defender – and further reports claim he is set to finalise the deal with his medical.
But coronavirus restrictions mean his medical is expected to take place in France before he completes his Premier League move.
Magalhaes was heavily linked with Napoli, who also had a bid accepted.
But the young Brazilian has spent the week deliberating his future with offers on the table and reportedly is excited by a Premier League challenge.
