Arsenal Target Lille Midfielder Who Has Been Touted As The Next Paul Pogba After The Gabriel Deal.
Arsenal are on the verge of sealing their second transfer of the season with Lille’s central defender Gabriel Magalhaes having already completed his medical.
It is expected the Gabriel deal will be announced in the course of the week with the player expected to undergone a fourteen day quarantine period as a government directive.
Top of Arsenal’s priority this summer is a central midfielder adept at both a defensive and box to box roles. Their interest in Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey is expected to continue to the final days of the window.
Another player from the Lille may be moving to Arsenal if they fail to land their number one target in Thomas Partey as the gunners will move for Boubakary Soumare.
The Lille Midfielder’s playing style has been likened to that of Manchester United’s Paul Pogba as their range of passing and trickery is almost similar.
Soumare has been scouted by many clubs and looked to be on the verge of joining Newcastle in the winter transfer period before the deal collapsed.
