Chelsea Could Miss Out Signing Of 22 Year Old Brazilian
Serie A giants Napoli have reportedly decided on a deal with Lille for the Blues and Gunners transfer target Gabriel Magalhaes.
Having impressed for the French outfits during the last two march, the 22-year-old has been strongly connected with a move to the English top-tier.
Yet, despite interest from the likes of the Blues, the Toffees, and Gunners, it seems that Gabriel center-back could be shifting to Italy.
According to Foot Mercato, Gennaro Gattuso’s side has been able to concur on a fee of €22m (£19.91m) plus compensations with Lille for the center-back’s duties.
Although other teams could still make an official strategy, the Brazilian is assumed to have approved on a five-year contract with the Serie A giants.
Meanwhile, Gunners are reportedly scheduling to make a summer move for Hellas Verona defender Marash Kumbulla.
The 20-year-old defender who came through the youth system at Verona has managed to found back of the net once in 18 Serie A tournaments during the 2019-20 season.
The Blues have lately been credited with an interest in the Albania international defender amid recommendations that he could be ready for £27m when the transfer window will be re-opened in the summer.
According to FC Inter News, though, Arsenal has also united the race for Marash Kumbulla and is prepared to battle a number of teams for the central defender’s services.
