Gabriel Paulista: What can Arsenal expect from Brazilian defender?

Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger is hopeful of a deal for Villarreal defender Gabriel Paulista.

Background: Gabriel Armando "Paulista" de Abreu

Though born in the southern city of Sao Paulo, Gabriel learned his trade with Esporte Clube Vitoria in Bahia, north east Brazil. The academy product was promoted to the club's first team in 2010 and soon found himself dropped in at the deep end, playing out of position at right back against a Neymar-led Santos in the 2010 Copa do Brasil final. Vitoria lost 3-2 over two legs; Neymar scoring one of the goals and missing a penalty.

Attacking Arsenal full of options as Wenger's men fight on three fronts

Arsene Wenger says his Arsenal side will fight to retain the FA Cup following their fourth-round win at Brighton.

Not too long ago, Theo Walcott was roundly mocked for suggesting the current Arsenal squad had an attack to rival that of 2003-04's Invincibles. However, after Walcott scored as a revamped Arsenal attack saw off Brighton in the fourth round of the FA Cup, it's easy to see what he was driving at.

Arsenal don't have an individual whose gifts or garlands can match Thierry Henry or Dennis Bergkamp. However, they do have an abundance of attackers from the tier below those fabled figures. The stars may...

Theo Walcott: Arsenal can compete on all fronts now stars are fit again

Tomas Rosicky scored one and set up another as Arsenal held off a second-half rally from Brighton to win 3-2 and book their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
ESPN FC's Stewart Robson reacts to Theo Walcott's comments that the current side is better in attacking positions, but Robson disagrees completely.

Theo Walcott claims the return of Arsenal's injured stars has given the Gunners belief they can challenge for any trophy this season.

Walcott and Mesut Ozil have started less than 10 Premier League games between them in the current campaign but the pair were both on target as Arsenal edged into the FA Cup fifth round with a 3-2 win over Brighton on Sunday.

Walcott's goal was his first since New Year's Day 2014, with the winger enduring a 12-month absence with a cruciate ligament injury, while Ozil...

Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas: Thierry Henry assist record 'not an obsession'

ESPN FC's Craig Burley responds to Jose Mourinho's comments following their loss to Bradford City in the FA Cup, where he blames the squad rotation.
Chelsea and Ivory Coast striker Didier Drogba received the Football Writers' Association's Tribute award at a gala dinner In London on Sunday.

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has told the Daily Telegraph he values assists as much as a striker values goals but says he is not obsessed with breaking former Arsenal teammate Thierry Henry's record.

Henry holds the Premier League record for assists with 20 in the 2002-03 season, but Fabregas appears on course to surpass the Frenchman, having already set up 15 goals in the league this season.

"Of course, I would like to beat Thierry's record, but it's not an obsession," Fabregas said. "Sometimes...

Gabriel Paulista receives work permit ahead of Arsenal transfer - report

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti explains the reported move of Gabriel Paulista to Arsenal, where the 24-year-old defender would prove to be a valuable additional to the Gunners' defence.

Gabriel Paulista has been granted a work permit ahead of his proposed move from Villarreal to Arsenal, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The two clubs reached an agreement for the transfer of Gabriel, 24, on Saturday, with Joel Campbell set to move from the Gunners to the La Liga side on loan until the end of the season as part of the deal.

Arsenal had been required to convince a Football Association hearing that the defender is an ''exceptional talent" as he does not meet the current required international...
