The two clubs have had €30m bids accepted by Lille and the in-demand central defender will be sold.
The only question now is will it be London or Naples for Gabriel?
A long-running saga that has also involved Everton is set to come to an end, with Arsenal in pole position.
The Brazilian favours a move to the English club, but Napoli are ‘relentlessly’ trying to convince him.
The Italians had a gentleman’s agreement with Lille for Gabriel, but that no longer appears to be in effect.
His final decision will be made ‘on Wednesday night or overnight’, Mohammed Bouhafsi of RMC has revealed.
Pour #Gabriel, finale entre #Arsenal et #Naples.
Arsenal est en pôle mais le Napoli relance inlassablement le joueur et le Losc.
Le joueur doit prendre sa décision ce soir ou dans la nuit.
Le #Losc est d’accord avec Arsenal et Naples : Le Losc va récupérer 30M€ ! #RMCsport
