Arsenal are reportedly open to selling Gabriel Magalhaes in the January transfer window. Hence, they will demand 50 million for the Brazilian.
He has just signed a new contract with the Premier League giants. However, it looks like the Gunners did it to protect his transfer market value.
JUVENTUS AND GABRIEL MAGALHAES TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Arsenal are open to selling their defender Gabriel Magalhaes in the January transfer window. He has just signed a new contract with the Gunners. Hence, it is going to be surprising news for the fans. However, Juventus will be happy with the news. The reports claim that they were interested in signing him in the summer transfer window.
They also offered 25 million plus Adrien Rabiot on permanent and Arthur Melo on a loan deal. However, the deal failed to materialize. A number of reports also claim that the Gunners were not interested in these players. Hence, it looks like Juventus will make a 50 million bid for the Arsenal defender. Therefore, it looks like the Gunners will revisit their stance on rejecting bids for the Brazilian defender.
ARSENAL ALREADY HAVE THE OPTIONS IN THE SQUAD TO REPLACE THE BRAZILIAN DEFENDER
According to reports, Arsenal will have no problem with replacing Gabriel Magalhaes in the squad. It also claims that they do not need to spend a dime on his replacement. This is because they have a replacement in the squad. The player to replace him is Ben White. Ben White currently plays for the Gunners team in the right-back position.
However, the report claims that Arsenal sees him as a long-term partner in center-back with William Saliba. This positional will certainly make sense. It is because Mikel Arteta already has Takheiro Tomiyasu and Cedric in the squad to play right-back. Hence, it looks like Arsenal will try to spend the potential 50 million to improve the forward areas in the squad.
Arsenal will hope to keep the same team till the end of the season. However, they will not be able to do anything if a mega bid arrives from Juventus. This is because Juventus defender Danilo is trying to convince him to join the Turin side in January.
