Arsenal set to seal deal for £10m defender

After weeks of inactivity, in terms of outbound transfers, Arsenal are set to complete the transfer of Gabriel to Valencia for £10 million, according to reports

Wenger has been desperate to offload squad players this summer in order to clear space on Arsenal’s wage bill. Kieran Gibbs, Lucas Perez, and Carl Jenkinson have all been linked with a move away from the club but as of yet, only Szczesny has departed the club. 

Bought in January 2015 for £13.5 million from Villareal, Gabriel has struggled to hold down a place in the first-team. Despite the need for more defenders in Arsenal’s new 3-4-2-1 system, Gabriel has fallen down the pecking order, in large part to his inability to communicate with his teammates. 

Indeed, Valencia even released a teaser video ahead of Gabriel’s announcement.
