Arsenal can exhale a sigh of relief as Gabriel Magalhaes is back in full training with the Brazilian national team. Thus putting to rest recent concerns over his injury. The 25-year-old center-back caused some worry when he was substituted during his debut for Brazil. It was against Bolivia due to thigh issues.The sight of Gabriel Magalhaes actively participating in training alongside illustrious stars like Neymar is undoubtedly reassuring for Arsenal supporters. This development will likely be met with enthusiasm not only by fans but also by Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta. Arteta recognizes Gabriel’s pivotal role within the team.

Gabriel Magalhaes has recently found himself on the bench for some of Arsenal’s matches. However, his significance was unmistakable during his performance against Manchester United. His fellow Arsenal teammate and compatriot, Gabriel Jesus, expressed his delight at seeing Gabriel return to the national side. With Thomas Partey sidelined due to injury, Gabriel’s availability becomes even more crucial for Arsenal’s midfield stability and defensive solidity.

Role of Gabriel for Brazil and Arsenal

He is to play a substantial role for Brazil in their upcoming match against Peru. Fortunately, the timing of this international duty should not raise alarm bells for Arsenal. Their next fixture against Everton is a late kick-off on Sunday. This allows ample time for their Brazilian players to return and recover.

Recalling the challenges Arsenal faced at Goodison Park in the previous season, where an unexpected defeat dented their title aspirations, the return of Gabriel to the squad brings a sense of optimism. Alongside players like Declan Rice, Arsenal may feel better equipped to navigate similar challenges this time around. While the absence of Thomas Partey due to injury is a setback, the nearing full fitness of Brazil’s Gabriel Jesus provides additional options for the team.

Arsenal fans will be hoping that these developments fortify their squad as they pursue success in both domestic and international competitions, instilling confidence in their ability to compete at the highest level.
