Gabriel Magalhaes has been on LOSC Lille’s books since January of 2017.
Gabriel made the move to the French outfit from Brazil, before being sent out on loan to Troyes, and then Dinamo Zagreb’s second team.
The 22-year-old then returned to Lille in the summer of 2018, and has since gone on to become a key figure for the Ligue 1 side.
In total, Gabriel has notched 52 appearances across all competitions for Lille, in which he has netted two.
Gabriel has been a particularly prominent figure for Lille this season, racking up 34 appearances across all competitions as they try to secure another season of Champions League football.
Lille are currently 4th in the French top-flight, one point adrift of 3rd place.

Capital giants Arsenal were linked with the Lille standout back in February.
In the wake of those links, Gabriel was asked if Arsenal could be a possibility for him, to which the Brazilian responded:
“Maybe, I don’t know. But I would love to play in the Premier League.”
