Gabriel Paulista impresses at Arsenal
Arsenal defender Gabriel Paulista has been drawing praise from all quarters for his impressive form following his January acquisition from Villareal.
Unlike the last Brazilian signed by Arsene Wenger during the mid-season window, flop Andre Santos, Paulista has settled well and shown himself and shown himself adept at partnering either of Laurent Koscielny or Per Mertesacker in the centre of the gunners' defence.
The statistics reinforce this view, with Squawka revealing that Paulista has won 73% of his duels for Arsenal, compared to 66% for Mertesacker and just 51% for Koscielny.
The former Vitória man also earned his first Brazil call-up last month and although he did not play a first national cap cannot be far away if he maintains his current form.
