Arsenal fans have resurfaced a clip of Nicolas Pepe and Gabriel Magalhaes while the two played at Lille.

The Gunners have confirmed the signing of Gabriel after making the Brazilian a top priority.

Mikel Arteta has been looking to partner William Saliba at the back after the Frenchman returned from his loan at Saint-Etienne.

A bid of around £27m was accepted from Lille and the Brazilian rejected moves from Napoli and Everton.

Technical director Edu said: "We are delighted to have signed Gabriel.

"He is a player we have been studying for a while and he was in demand from many clubs, so we are proud to have agreed and completed this transfer with Lille and the player.

It showed the fleet-footed forward deliver a perfect free-kick while Gabriel got on the end of it to score a powerful header.
