Spanish newspaper Marca is claiming today that Gabriel Paulista is on the verge of signing for the Gunners. According to the source, the Villarreal defender is on his way to North London. Paulista has noted before that it is his “dream” to play in the Premier League for Arsenal. It seems that negotiations are going well and a fee is soon to be agreed and then all it depends on is the work permit being accepted for the player.

Wenger himself had confirmed earlier that the deal is close, stating the fee is around €20million (£15million).

According to The Metro, Arsenal are demanding around £12million for their right back, Carl Jenkinson. This news was also reported on yesterday however new details have come out about the transfer fee.

It appeared that Arsenal were asking for over £10million for the defender, a fee West Ham would struggle to afford, and it has now become clear that West Ham are only willing to reach a fee of around £6million for the 22-year old.

After weeks of speculation, Arsenal finally announced the signing of Krystian Bielik from Legia Warsaw for an undisclosed fee, which is believed to be around £2.5 million

A statement from Arsenal read:

“Arsenal have completed the signing of 17-year-old midfielder Krystian Bielik from Legia Warsaw for an undisclosed fee.”

According to reports from Spain, Gabriel Paulista will shortly join Arsenal from Villarreal for a fee believed to be in the region of £15 million.

After Mathieu Debuchy returned to action against Galatasaray last month, very few expected that Arsene Wenger would sign a defender, but the Frenchman picked up a shoulder injury recently prompting his manager to look for new defenders.

Thanks to his phenomenal form with Palermo this season, Arsenal are reportedly interested in bringing Paulo Dybala down to Emirates Stadium this summer to bolster their striking options for the future.

His current contract with the Italian outfit runs until summer 2016 and Italian media have already started discussing his next destination. The striker was believed to be extending his stay for three years, but fresh reports from Italy claim that contract renewal talks between the Argentine and club has fallen apart.
