According to Footmercato, Lille are rivalling West Ham United for defender Sven Botman as a replacement for reported Arsenal and Everton target Gabriel Magalhaes.

Gabriel is seemingly set to depart Lille this summer amid huge interest from abroad.

Everton have been pursuing Gabriel for some time now. The Guardian noted two week ago that The Toffees had made progress in their attempts to sign him for £30 million.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are looking at a left-sided centre-back.

A report last week by L’Equipe claimed Gabriel has offers from Arsenal and Everton on the table. However, the defender is edging towards a move to Napoli.

With Lille apparently accepting their star defender is on the verge of leaving, the French club have turned to Botman as a replacement but face West Ham competition.
