Arsenal boss Wenger happy counting on new signing Gabriel

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is happy with the arrival of Gabriel Paulista from Villarreal.

Gabriel is expected to go straight into the squad against Villa.

Wenger is confident the 24-year-old can follow in the tradition of Brazilian's having a positive impact on the club.

"We were lucky as we also had Gilberto and Edu, who is from Sao Paulo, and so it Sylvinho. We were very lucky with the Brazilians, they are top-level class people," he said.

"Football is a big meaning for them, they have the hunger and the love for football, it is in their country and it is a religion."
