Arsenal’s push for Lille defender Gabriel remains on track, according to Italian sources.
Gabriel is now believed to be close to joining Arsenal ahead of Manchester United.
According to Sky Italia’s Gianluca Di Marzio, the 22-year-old could become a Gunners player by Saturday.
But that is only if United fail to raise their offer to the centre-back.
It has been claimed that Lille prefer Gabriel to join Napoli, but the player is keen on a switch to the Premier League.
