Arsenal fans are on cloud nine here in the Football Transfer Tavern after their win over Manchester City and if you can believe it, Metro are about to make it even better for them.
The Gunners are reportedly considering a move for Villarreal defender Gabriel Paulista who has made it very clear that he would love a move to the Premier League side and even hinted that talks were currently taking place between the Gunners and his representatives.
One potential issue for the Gunners regarding any deal for the defender could well be the fact that the La Liga side would demand Joel Campbell is involved as part of any deal with £5 million being bandied around as an initial figure for a starting point.
As our punters note by the pool table, Wenger is obviously ready to cut his losses with Campbell but would need to ensure that any potential deal for Paulista would not be hindered by a work permit issue.
The defender has not yet been handed a senior international cap by Brazil and is not in possession of an EU passport either.
Arsenal fans. Given Campbell cannot seem to work his way into Wenger’s plans, would you swap him for a defender this January? Let us know your thoughts below.
