Reports are out claiming that Arsenal defender Gabriel Paulista is enjoying his first preseason with the club.
The 24-year-old central defender has delivered some assured displays during his first six months in north London after joining the club from Villarreal.
“I’ve only been here for a short while but I think it is a wonderful experience,” he said, speaking at the launch of Arsenal’s new PUMA away kit, “I am learning a lot with all my colleagues, with the city and with this club, which I have no words to describe because it is so great. I am very happy.
“I think it involves everything; the family helping outside and the team-mates helping within the club. I think this combination helps my happiness grow more every day.
“When I first arrived it was my time to adapt. I think I am more adapted now, so I really want to win, I want to be at my best to be able to do all I can to help everyone.
“I do think that my characteristics of being strong have helped me adapt well to the English league because it is a very hard league, with a lot of contact.
“So I have been making the most of it to get better all the time.”
