Arsenal are keen on signing the Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes this summer.
As per reports, the likes of Everton and Chelsea are keen on the player as well.
Gabriel has done very well in Ligue 1 this season and it is no surprise that he is attracting interest from the Premier League.
Arsenal are in desperate need of quality defenders and he would be a good signing for them.
David Luiz is expected to leave at the end of this season and Sokratis is in his 30s. Mustafi remains an unreliable option for the Gunners.
Arteta must look to bring someone like Gabriel in and he would cost around £27m this summer.
Meanwhile, the Gunners have also made contact to sign Lyon’s Moussa Dembele.
The former Celtic ace is one of the best strikers in France right now and he would be a tremendous addition to most Premier League teams.
Dembele could replace the underperforming Lacazette next season.
It will be interesting to see if the Gunners can work out a deal with Lyon this summer.
The French club could be under pressure to sell because of the financial losses this season. They have been affected massively because of the current health crisis.
The 23-year-old striker has 16 league goals so far this season.
Elsewhere, reported Arsenal target Adil Aouchiche is all set to join Saint-Etienne on a free transfer.
The PSG midfielder is out of contract and the Gunners wanted to sign him this summer.
The 17-year-old is a top talent and Arsenal will be disappointed to have missed out on him.
The player completed his medical with ASSE on Thursday evening.
The Gunners held talks with the player’s representatives as well but they have failed to lure him to London.
