Paulista completes Arsenal move

Arsenal’s protracted move for Gabriel Paulista has been completed, with the Brazilian defender arriving in a deal which will see Joel Campbell complete the season on loan at Villarreal.

The 24-year-old’s arrival has been far from straightforward due to work permit complications, although the Gunners successfully argued the centre-back was an exceptional talent who will benefit the Premier League.

That development paved the way for Gabriel to complete formalities on Wednesday, joining from Villarreal in a deal reportedly worth £15m.

The move has seen Campbell move to Spain on loan for the rest of the season, although the Costa Rica winger penned a new long-term deal at Arsenal before departing.
