Brazilian could feature in the Community Shield

Lots of reports coming in to say that Arsenal have agreed on personal terms with Gabriel Magalhaes.

The deal is somewhere between £22 and £27 million for the Brazilian defender, who is expected to join from Lille on a 5-year contract by the end of the week

Gabriel played a key part in helping Lille finish fourth in Ligue Une and secure Europa League football next season.

Arteta has been keen to add another left-footed center-back to his squad since Pablo Mari was ruled out with a serious ankle injury and Gabriel fits the bill.

The deal should be completed in time to see the South American line-up alongside William Saliba in the Community shield, which is less than two weeks away.
