Everton, Arsenal and Manchester United ‘ready to battle it out for £27m Lille defender Magalhaes’

Brazilian defender Gabriel Magalhaes hopes to land his dream move to the Premier League with Everton, Arsenal and Manchester United reportedly battling it out for his signature.

The representatives of the Lille centre back are currently in the UK to negotiate a move, according to Sky Sports. 

United have made Borussia Dortmund and England winger Jadon Sancho their top transfer target this summer but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also keen to recruit a central defender to partner Harry Maguire.  

The 22-year-old underwent a medical with Everton before the lockdown but they have so far failed to finalise a deal for the centre-half.

The Brazilian is expected to make a decision on his future over the coming days.

It’s understood Lille will listen to offers of around €30million (£27m) for Gabriel.

Gabriel made no secret of his ambitions to play in the Premier League when quizzed about Arsenal’s reported interest earlier this year.

Asked whether he could see himself joining the Gunners, he told Telefoot: ‘Maybe, I don’t know.

‘But I would love to play in the Premier League.’
