In fact, Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes, who was linked with a move to Emirates Stadium during the summer transfer window, wanted to celebrate with former teammate Nicolas Pepe.
According to The Sun, the Gunners were watching the defender after investigating in January.
In addition, the report said the north London company may relocate this summer but has been warned that it will have to pay a substantial sum.
Gabriel cost the Ligue 1 side just £ 1.5million and it is claimed that Lille president Gerard Lopez is expected to hold on for around £ 30million, or just 3million more pounds than Arsenal spent on William Saliba last summer.
That said, a move to Manchester United or Everton seems more likely based on the latest transfer rumors.
French outlet RMC Sport claim United have met Gabriel’s entourage in England, while ties to the Toffees, Napoli and an unnamed fourth club remain.
But transfer speculation seemed to be the last thing on Gabriel’s mind after seeing Arsenal lift the FA Cup trophy for a record 14th time after defeating the Blues thanks to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s brace.
Pepe pleaded for help for the winner and then got active on social media.
And as spotted by Arsenal fans on Twitter, Gabriel responded live on Pepe’s Instagram with two muscle emojis congratulating the winger on winning a trophy in his debut season in England.
Could the couple be reunited soon?
In response to this, an Arsenal fan said: “Agent Pepe, get down to business. Get Gabriel in our club. ”
Another said: “He was also in the Pepe live broadcast last night. Pepe being at Arsenal could help us. Gabriel also knows David Luiz. “
