Gabriel has arrived in Valencia this afternoon ahead of his proposed move to the La Liga side.
It’s believed Arsenal will receive a fee of around €11m for the Brazilian, and he was greeted by press and fans at Valencia airport.

Valencia airport is really quite a crap airport. Don’t get me wrong, the city itself is fantastic and I recommend it to anyone. I know a really good kebab place if anyone’s looking too, but the airport itself is a bit … well … Luton, is the best way I can put it.
Perhaps in time there’ll be some investment in the infrastructure there, but for now those of you who travel there will have to put up with it.
One thing you could do, however, is fly to Barcelona and get the train from Sants – a first class ticket is really quite cheap and they give you a meal and mini bottles of booze like on aeroplanes. It’s something to consider.
More on the Gabriel move when we have it.
