OL are still looking for a central defender to back up this summer, as a priority. And the trail to Gabriel Paulista has just added to the long list of targets.

OL: Gabriel Paulista has the profile sought by Juninho?
OL are prospecting all over Europe and outside in order to strengthen their defense. Joachim Andersen and Marcelo Guedes failed last season, so Juninho is looking for an axial back to pair with Jason Denayer. And he put his radars on his compatriot Gabriel Paulista. The latter has been playing at Valence CF since August 2017, he is a crack on the team of coach Albert Celades. As proof, he took part in 34 games this season with Les Ches, 25 in La Liga. His profile corresponds to that sought by the sports director of Olympique Lyonnais according to Foot Mercato. The 29-year-old Brazilian plays on the left side in the center and has high level experience. He has 82 La Liga games, but also 46 Premier League games in the Arsenal jersey between 2015 and 2017. And that's not all! Gabriel Paulista also has twenty European Cup matches to his name, the Champions League and the Europa League combined. OL's target is under contract in Valence until 2022 and its cost is estimated at € 17.5 million on the market.

Gabriel Paulista on the long list of names ticked by OL
Long before Gabriel Paulista, the Rhone club ticked several names on its list for the priority position to be reinforced in Rudi Garcia's team. Loud names: Mamadou Sakho (Crystal Palace), Diego Godin (Inter Milan) and Thiago Silva (PSG) appear there. There are also less prestigious names: Robin Koch (SC Friborg), Samuel Gigot (Spartak Moscow), Marash Kumbulla (Hellas Verona), Maximilian Wober (RB Salzburg) and Michael Ngadeu (La Gantoise).
