Gabriel: Napoli make big salary offer to Arsenal target

Napoli have made a last-ditch attempt to sign Lille defender Gabriel after making the player an increased offer, described as "a big salary deal".

Arsenal remain favourites to land the 22-year-old Brazilian but the Serie A side have made an 11th-hour bid to entice the player to choose Italy.

Everton, who were ahead of all interested parties in March before the lockdown, are now out of the running to sign the highly-rated central defender and it appears his future lies in either Naples or London

Gabriel favours a move to the Premier League but Napoli's late offer is being seriously considered.

Lille have told Sky Sports News that three clubs have met their asking price for Gabriel, with those sides believed to be Arsenal, Everton and Napoli.

The French club say the player will decide his future this week.

Lille's president Gerard Lopez told Sky Sports News defender Gabriel will be able to choose where he moves this summer.

He said: "We clearly told him what our expectations were แทงบอลสเต็ป , we spoke to a number of clubs, our expectations were met by a number of clubs and we have given him the time to decide.

"It is going to be entirely his decision. We tend to try and steer our players in certain directions, but at the end of the day it's the player's decision.

"He is a super guy and a great football player and he wants to play. There has been a lot of interest but we have clearly decided to close the door to further clubs at this stage and let him choose."
