Lille boss opens up on Megalhaes move.


Lille president, Gerard Lopez, has confirmed Gabriel Magalhaes will choose between Arsenal and Napoli.

The Ligue 1 club has accepted offers from both clubs for Magalhaes, but the Brazilian defender will decide his next team.

“I think he has narrowed it down. Arsenal are [of] high interest to him. Napoli is [of] high interest to him.“I don’t think I am giving up too much if I tell you that choice is going to be made between today or tomorrow,” he said.

The 22-year-old is believed to have chosen the Gunners and will undergo medicals with the Premier League side. When asked specifically if Arsenal was the player’s first choice, Lopez said:

“I don’t want to say that and I don’t want to speak for the player.”

Gabriel Magalhaes flies in for Arsenal medicals.
