Arsenal defender Gabriel Paulista emerges as a £10m target for La Liga side Valencia.

Arsenal defender Gabriel Paulista has emerged as a reported target for La Liga side Valencia.

The 26-year-old joined the Gunners from Villarreal in January 2015 but has struggled to nail down a regular spot in Arsene Wenger's XI, making just 41 Premier League appearances in two-and-a-half seasons.

According to The Sun, Los Che are keen on bringing the Brazilian back to Spain and are prepared to pay around £10m for his services.

Wenger's side acquired Gabriel for more than £11m but are willing to accept a loss on him as they build up funds to bring in big-name signings in the remaining weeks of the summer transfer window.

The club are also looking to offload Carl Jenkinson, Lucas Perez, Kieran Gibbs and Mathieu Debuchy and will additionally listen to serious offers for Calum Chambers, Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud and Jack Wilshere.

A potential deal to bring Monaco winger Thomas Lemar to the Emirates has reportedly been put on hold until the squad has been trimmed.
