Arsenal are on the verge of announcing their second signing of the summer transfer window.
The Gunners have already secured the signing of Willian, who has put pen to paper on a three-year contract at the Emirates Stadium after the expiry of his deal at Stamford Bridge at the end of the 2019/20 season.
As well as strengthening the attacking side of the squad, Mikel Arteta has been keen on adding defensive reinforcements throughout the transfer window.
And the Arsenal boss is about to get what he wants with Brazilian centre-back Gabriel Magalhaes having completed a medical ahead of a £25 million move to the club from Lille.

As Arsenal fans wait for official confirmation of the news, there has been a video circulating on social media that appears to show somebody posing for a photoshoot in the club’s away strip.
