One of the surest signs that Arsenal are heading somewhere, albeit slowly, is that Barcelona are being linked with more and more Arsenal players.
After taking Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on a free that Xavi called a ‘gift fallen from the sky’, they are now apparently eyeing up Gabriel.
That seems unlikely to be sanctioned by the club, given his integral role within Mikel Arteta’s first team, but who knows what Barcelona’s interest will do to Gabriel himself.
After all, Barcelona may not be where they were when they were terrorising us in the Champions League, they are still in a far better position than Arsenal, currently.
The 24-year-old central defender, currently valued at around £27m (Arsenal paid £23.4m for him), is under contract with Arsenal until 2025.
