- Madrid now face the competition of Tottenham among the others in the battle to sign Gabriel Magalhaes.
- The Spurs are ready to offer €30 million for the Brazilian defender.
- The Whites supposedly view him as a Militao replacement.
According to Fichajes, who are a less-reliable source on transfers, the English side are even considering tabling out a €30 million offer in attempt to step up their chase.
No deal has been agreed yet but the report says that Jose Mourinho sees the 22-year-old as a player who would solve Spurs' defensive problems in the midst of uncertainty over Jan Vertonghen's and Toby Alderweireld's future.
The centre-back is said to be highly valued for being left-footed – he would be a perfect fit for the team's backline given that both Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane are right-footed, as well as Eder Militao.
He has played a crucial role for Lille this season, making 34 appearances for the French side. Gabriel averages 1.7 tackles per game in Ligue 1 and he was particularly good in the Champions League, having registered 2 tackles, 2.2 interceptions and 3.7 clearances per game (h/t WhoScored).
The only problem is that the Brazilian defender would occupy the place of a non-EU player at the Bernabeu. Madrid, however, have no room for another foreign player before Vinicius will be given his second passport.
