The Brazilian joined the Gunners for a transfer fee of £45 million. The player signed a contract with the North London club on a five-year deal with will see him stay at the club until June 2027. According to the forward player, the influence of Mikel Arteta was the reason why he joined the Gunners.

We spoke a couple of times about the club, the players, the project and the future. I believe 100 per cent in Mikel. I had a very good time with him before, he’s a very good guy and a very good coach as well.He helped me a lot [at Manchester City]. We would always stick together after the training sessions and do some finishing or something. He’s a very intelligent guy and was an amazing player, so if he knows something he can teach me or the young players.

The 25-year-old also said that he had been a big fan of Arsenal while he was younger, especially because of the Gunners’ legend, Thiery Henry.

I followed Arsenal when I was young because of Thierry Henry. Obviously, I didn’t follow too many European teams but when I saw some of the players that played here, I was like “wow, this club is big.” When I played against Arsenal I was looking at the Emirates and it was a very good stadium, so I’m very excited to play here. I’m so happy to sign for this big club. Since day one when I knew I could come to play for Arsenal, I was happy. I know the staff, I know some players, the Brazilian ones. I know there are a lot of top players. They are young and I’m still young as well, so I am so happy to be here to help. I come to help, to learn as well and to try to do my best.

Gabriel has won the Premier League title four times, the FA Cup, and the League Cup three times. He is a regular in the Brazil national team, making 56 appearances and scoring 19 times since making his full international debut for his country in September 2016.
