Juventus eyeing shock move for Arsenal defender

Gabriel Magalhaes news

Juventus want Gabriel Magalhaes

Juventus are reportedly plotting a surprise move for Arsenal defender Gabriel Magalhaes this summer.

The Brazilian has developed into a key player for the Gunners, and he has ever-present in the Premier League since September.

His current deal does not expire until June 2025, but Gianluca di Marzio claims that the Bianconeri are still hoping to prise him away.

Manager Massimiliano Allegri is looking for a left-footed replacement for Giorgio Chiellini. Gabriel has emerged as the prime choice.

The Bianconeri could offer Arthur as a makeweight for the Brazilian, but it appears highly unlikely that a deal can be negotiated.

The Gunners were only interested in landing Arthur on loan in January, and are expected to look for more high-profile midfield options.

On the other hand, Gabriel is regarded as an indispensable figure, and it would take a significant bid to change their resolve this summer.

Barcelona were recently linked with the Brazilian, but they also appear to have cooled their interest, knowing his importance to the Gunners.
