Arsenal fans were feeling elated after the club were linked with a move for a Ligue 1 defender.
According to Mark Irwin, the Gunners are interested in making a move for Lille centre-half Gabriel Magalhães in the summer with Edu Gaspar having already held talks with the French side. If a transfer was to happen, he would be the second player to join the club from the French team after Nicolas Pepe made a £72m move last summer.
One fan described the player as a ‘beast’.

The 22-year-old has enjoyed a fantastic campaign in France and averages the joint-least number of fouls per game (0.8), of players to have started more than one game, when compared to Mikel Arteta’s men. Fans are certain the Brazil youth international is the right option for the club as they took to Twitter to react to the reports. Here is a selection of tweets from the Emirates Stadium faithful:

Probably going to take a bit more but that’s music to my ears. Athletic, strong, good in air and comfortable in possession. https://t.co/L3PAQcbPZg
