The Most Expensive Arsenal XI In The Club’s History


CB: Gabriel Paulista (£12.75m)

Signed from Villarreal in January 2015, Gabriel Paulista is yet to establish himself as a first-team regular for Arsenal fully but has made 46 Premier League appearances overall- often finding himself behind the likes of Laurent Koscielny and more recently Rob Holding in the pecking order.

Arsenal’s involvement in the Europa League next season could hand Paulista more regular opportunities due to squad rotation though and he could also benefit from a change of formation, assuming the Gunners continue to utilise a three-man defence.
