Gabriel Paulista is no David Luiz, says Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has warned fans not to expect too much of new signing Gabriel Paulista, ahead of his side's Premier League match with Aston Villa.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is excited by the prospect of working with new signing Gabriel and expects the Brazilian to be the last signing of this transfer window.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is confident Gabriel Paulista has what to takes to become a top centre-back in the Barclays Premier League, and will not be the next Brazilian 'PlayStation' player like David Luiz.

The 24-year-old completed a permanent transfer from Villarreal earlier this week following international clearance, with Costa Rica striker Joel Campbell heading in the other direction on loan for the rest of the season as part of a deal said to be worth 11.5 million pounds.

Campbell, Podolski & Sanogo exits leave inconsistent Arsenal light up top

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti discusses Arsenal's defensive cover in Gabriel Paulista. Marcotti feels the centre-back position may now be well covered for Arsene Wenger's side.

Here's an interesting stat -- Arsenal have yet to win three Premier League games in a row. That is something that must change because as it is, such a poor run threatens to undermine their season.

Arsene Wenger's men go into the Aston Villa match on Sunday following wins over Stoke and Manchester City. The latter was an impressive reminder of Wenger's nous and Arsenal's quality but if they really want to kick on, they must find a winning rhythm between now and May.

They've gone close a couple of...

Arsenal reveling in newfound squad balance

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti discusses Arsenal's defensive cover in Gabriel Paulista. Marcotti feels the centre-back position may now be well covered for Arsene Wenger's side.

For most of this season, Arsenal have had an imbalanced squad.

Some of that was down to the fact that players were missing through short-, mid- and long-term injuries. However, when you looked at how the squad was constructed in the summer, it boiled down to the fact that the Gunners had too many attacking options, and not enough defensive depth.

So far this January, three forwards who hardly featured have left the club on loan. Lukas Podolski went to Inter Milan, Yaya Sanogo to Crystal Palace...

Gabriel Paulista completes move to Arsenal from Villarreal

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti details Gabriel Paulista's move to Arsenal, where he believes the 24-year-old defender will prove to be a valuable additional to the Gunners' defence.

Gabriel Paulista has signed for Arsenal from Villarreal for a reported fee of 11.3 million pounds.

Gabriel, 24, had a work permit agreed earlier this week and arrives in England with Joel Campbell, who also signed a new long-term contract, moving from the Gunners to the La Liga side on loan until the end of the season as part of the deal.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has warned his side they cannot afford to lose focus and take the threat of goal-shy Aston Villa lightly on Sunday.

The Gunners signalled a return to form with a battling 2-0 win at Manchester City before then securing safe passage past Brighton into the fifth round of the FA Cup.

With the likes of Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil now back in contention, each having scored in the 3-2 win over the Seagulls, the mood within the squad is very much positive as they prepare for...
