Gabriel Magalhaes has revealed why he chose to join Arsenal during the summer transfer window. The 22-year-old joined the Gunners from Lille.

During this season, the Arsenal defender has made overall 9 appearances in which he has scored one goal.

“I was trying not to hear too much about transfer speculation because you always end up thinking about everything that’s going on,” Gabriel said, speaking exclusively to Arsenal Player, as quoted by Evening Standard.

“After Arsenal came into the equation, he told me about other clubs that were interested, but I chose Arsenal because it was a dream for me. It’s a club that I really like and always watched on TV, with fantastic history.

“Arsenal is a huge club, one of the biggest in the world, and I told my agent from the start that if Arsenal came in for me, I wanted to wear the shirt, play at the stadium and feel the fans’ support because it’s a club I’ve always watched.

“I’m now very pleased to be here today alongside top players. It’s a childhood dream of mine.”
