Arsenal have completed the signing of Villarreal centre-back Gabriel Paulista, with the 24-year-old having been awarded a work permit, for a deal said to be worth around £15M with Joel Campbell going in the opposite direction on loan.

Manager Arsene Wenger previously revealed the deal to sign Paulista could be completed today, saying: “Paulista is a central defender but he can also play on the flanks. He is tall and pacy. He has a good chance to adapt to English football. I see good potential in him. The deal could be done before the FA Cup draw (on Monday).”

Arsenal are continuing the strengthening of their defensive options, with the Londoners close to completing a deal to sign Villarreal defender Gabriel Paulista.

“I hadn’t considered selling Gabriel, it’s bad news from a sporting point of view. If both Gabriel and the club believe that his sale to Arsenal is the best for all parties, we will accept,” said Villarreal manager Marcelino.

The 24-year-old could see the Gunners back around £10M, but would provide much-needed strength in depth in an area Arsenal have been lacking in this season. No deal has been confirmed yet by either party, but the move is expected to be completely shortly.
