Deal Done + Photos – Arsenal Agree Deal For Defender

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

Arsenal are closing in on a deal with Valencia that will see Gabriel return to La Liga for just £10 million.

As per the Mirror, Arsenal are looking to offload their excess player and Arsene Wenger is ready to let the Brazilian go, as he has failed to live up to his potential since his arrival from Villarreal.

Gabriel, who is still yet to fully recover from a knee injury has never been able to hold down a place at the North London club and the emergence of Rob Holding, who transferred from Bolton made the impact of his underperformance more tolerable.

Holding impressed towards the tail end of the previous season and has flourished in a back three system.

Arsenal stand to make a £5 million loss on the player who signed for the club in 2015.

During his time at the Emirates, he lifted the FA Cup twice and also won two Community Shields with the Gunners.
