The Brazilian has been a mainstay at the back for Mikel Arteta this season, partnering Ben White in defence after the Englishman was signed from Brighton last year for £50million. The year before was when Gabriel arrived after being pinpointed by the Gunners manager as an ideal target following a fine campaign at Lille.
Gunners boss Mikel Arteta likes to have a left-footed defender in his backline to cope with his style of football, playing out from the back, while Gabriel can also pick a pass. But it has been a tough campaign for the north London side in the Premier League.
Tuttosport says Arteta is considering letting Gabriel leave the club in the summer transfer window with Juventus interested in acquiring his services.
The Italian giants are looking at replacements for Giorgio Chiellini, who will depart at the end of the season after 18 years in Turin, and Gabriel has been identified as the ideal candidate. It is further stated that Arsenal are slowly being convinced to open the door to a transfer.
