Although there was no confirmation from the Premier League club an announcement was made by Villarreal who stated that they would be taking the Arsenal striker Joel Campbell on loan for the rest of the season.

It is unclear as to whether Arsenal have resolved the issue of whether or not Gabriel would receive a work permit but the scale of the fee would help their case in arguing the Brazilian - who does not have any international caps - should be allowed to play because he is a special talent.

Gabriel is 24 and has been identified by Arsene Wenger as a versatile player to help improve his team's defensive options. It had been thought that Arsenal would not pay more than £10 million, having initially offered £6 million, for Gabriel who has a buy-out clause of just over £15 million but sources in Spain indicate they have agreed a larger fee although they will recoup some money for the loan of Costan Rican striker Campbell.
