According to reports from French publication L’Equipe (h/t GFFN), three clubs have made a formal move to sign Lille defender Gabriel already.
The report claims that one Italian and two English sides have already submitted bids for the centre-back. Everton are one of the clubs, and the bid is worth between €27m and €32m (roughly £30m) excluding bonuses.
The 22-year-old has impressed heavily for Lille this season, and he would be a superb addition for Everton. However, he is wanted by a host of European clubs including AC Milan and Paris-Saint Germain. Premier League rivals Leicester City are also equally keen for his signature.
Gabriel 'passes' Everton medical Gabriel Magalhaes has reportedly offsite medical checks ahead of a €30m move to Everton, but has been left in limbo because of the Coronavirus. The Independent reports the Blues had presented a contract offer to Gabriel’s representatives, hoping to secure a deal quickly for the sought-after Brazilian.
With the global pandemic resulting in football being suspended, they fear the 22-year-old could now bide his time before making any decision over his future with PSG and Leicester City also said to be interested in the Lille centre-back.
