Gabriel Magalhaes reveals two people who convinced him to join Arsenal

Gabriel Magalhaes has revealed that Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta and technical director, Edu, convinced him to join the club.

The Gunners officially announced the Brazilian’s £27million switch from Lille on Tuesday after weeks of speculation.

Magalhaes was the subject of interest from Manchester United, Everton and Napoli.

But the 22-year-old was convinced to move to the Emirates, after speaking with Arteta and Edu.

“[Edu and I] had several chats about Arsenal and the new project, we had many good conversations,” he told Arsenal Digital.

“Then I had a call from the coach and that was very reassuring.

“Having the coach himself calling you to say he wants you in his squad motivates you a lot. That is the very reason I am here today.”
