Lille president Gerard Lopez has admitted that he expects Gabriel to make a move to a 'really big club' sooner rather than later, stating that he is close to joining one club

"It’s true that he would like to go and try something else out," Lopez said to Sky Sports. "We haven’t taken that decision yet, but he’s received a number of offers. I feel he’s closer to one club than others, but nothing’s done yet so we’ll see.

"He’s an absolute machine, so to me, he’s well on his way – if not this year – to potentially a really big club. I’m certain he’s on his way to the Brazilian national team at some point."
