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.

Theo Walcott confident of Arsenal's chances of retaining FA Cup

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

Theo Walcott believes Arsenal have a "massive opportunity" to win the FA Cup for a second year running this season following the weekend's fourth-round upsets.

The competition threw up a number of surprises with Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham and Southampton all being knocked out, while Manchester United and Liverpool still have to get past replays.

Arsenal, meanwhile, booked their place in the fifth round with a 3-2 victory over Brighton on Sunday and Walcott, who scored his side's opener,...
