Arsenal have repportedly slapped £43m price tag on Gabriel Magalhaes.

The North London giants have enjoyed a successful summer transfer window thus far with Brazilian centre-forawrd Gabriel Jesus joining the likes of Fabio Vieira and Marquinhos in making the move to the Emirates Stadium.

Mikel Arteta is now believed to turn his attention to the defensive third of the pitch with the North London outfit currently attempting to secure the services Lisandro Martinez from Ajax who has been also a top target for Man Utd.

However, the Gunners may still face a fight to retain the services of their main centre-back Gabriel, who is believed to have an admirer in Juventus.

According to Calciomercato, Mikel Arteta’s side would not consider parting ways with the South American centre-back unless they receive an offer upwards of £43m.

Gabriel played 35 games in the Premier League last campaigns as his side narrowly missed out on securing a return to the Champions League.

With three years left on his current deal, the Gunners are under no pressure to part ways with one of their key assets, however, there is theoretically the realistic option of making a substantial profit on a player who cost £27m plus add-ons two years ago.
