Gunners working on smart La Liga raid.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that talks are progressing well with Villarreal over the possible signing of Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista.
The talented 24-year-old, who has also been linked with Barcelona, has work permit issues blocking the move, but Wenger is known for his reluctance to admit any transfer dealings unless a move is close.
