Report: PSG interested in Arsenal star Gabriel amid Skriniar interest
PSG are interested in Arsenal defender Gabriel Magalhaes should they fail to reach an agreement with Inter Milan over Milan Skriniar, according to Tuttomercatoweb.
The Ligue 1 side are working on trying to agree a deal for Skriniar. They are ready to offer £43.4 million for the Slovakia international.
However, Inter want considerably more. The Nerazzurri have set an asking price of £60 million for the centre-back. In fact, the price rose to £69.5 million at one stage, before dropping back.
PSG do not expect their bid to be successful. However, Tuttomercatoweb reports that the offer will help those at Parc des Princes understand whether there is scope for a compromise.
Arsenal may hope that PSG manage to agree a deal for Skriniar. That is because Tuttomercatoweb reports that they plan to turn their attention to other targets should they miss out.
And one of the names on their wishlist is Gabriel. Another target is Pau Torres – which may be bad news for Tottenham with Antonio Conte keen to sign the Villarreal stalwart.
PSG interested in Gabriel
Gabriel is no stranger to being linked with a move away from Arsenal this summer. Reports claimed that Juventus want the Brazilian as they prepare to lose Giorgio Chiellini.
Arsenal were reportedly confident that Gabriel – who has been labelled ‘incredible‘ – would not move to Turin. So you would imagine that they would be similarly optimistic in light of PSG’s interest.
Of course, a move to the French capital would see Gabriel working in a star-studded team. And he is no stranger to Ligue 1.
But if a move to Juventus did not really appeal to Gabriel, then you would imagine that he would be just as content now that PSG are in the running.
