Brazilian set for medical today as Arsenal agree €30m deal

Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes is set to undergo a medical today after Arsenal agreed a €30m deal to sign the Brazilian, according to reports.

The 22-year-old has become sought after since the transfer window opened and Arsenal have made an official approach to sign the Brazil Under-20 international.

Gabriel, who has also been linked with the likes of Manchester United and Napoli, looks set to leave Stade Pierre-Mauroy having played in 24 of Lille’s 28 matches in a curtailed 2019-20 Ligue 1 campaign.



Widespread reports have claimed that the Gunners have agreed a €30m fee for Gabriel, while the defender has agreed to join the north London club.

And sport journalist Duncan Castles claimed late last night that a medical would take place today ahead of the move being completed.

Meanwhile, Lille president Gerard Lopez confirmed at the weekend the defender was expected to depart the French club.

“He is one of the players that we allowed to exit the club this summer, he asked for it and wants to try something else,” Lopez told Sky Sports.

“We clearly told him what our expectations were, we spoke to a number of clubs, our expectations were met by a number of clubs and we have given him the time to decide.

“It is going to be entirely his decision. We tend to try and steer our players in certain directions, but at the end of the day it’s the player’s decision.

“I know he is going to make a decision early next week.”

Chelsea mull over contract offer for legendary 35-year-old

Chelsea could look to reinforce their defence with the signing of legendary centre-back Thiago Silva, according to reports.

The 35-year-old defender will leave PSG after their mouthwatering Champions League final clash with Bayern Munich on Sunday.

Silva has won seven Ligue 1 titles since joining PSG for £36million from AC Milan in 2012. But the French giants have chosen not to renew his contract his summer.



The  claims that Frank Lampard’s men have been offered the chance to bring Silva to Stamford Bridge.

Lampard wants a new centre-back to bolster his back-line after Chelsea conceded more goals (54) than any top-10 club last season.

He said last month: “In terms of defensively, there is a way that I want us to play and it’s not gung-ho, it’s not crazy.

“A lot of the goals are the balls that come into our box that maybe we don’t defend right at that moment. That is something that has  to improve and I feel I know the answers to it.

“Some of it is work and that’s something we will see and it’s part of the process we are in. I don’t like it, I hate conceding goals but we have to work harder on it.”

, who would be converted into a centre-half if he made the move.

However, the Hammers want a fee in excess of £80million. That would potentially leave Chelsea hamstrung in their pursuit of other targets, so Silva could be a tempting option.
