January signing Gabriel Paulista is confident that the Gunners can win the Premier League title next season, and admits he is loving life in London.
In an interview with Sky Sports ahead of Monday night’s match with Hull City, the 24-year-old Brazilian defender said that to finish second in the league and retaining the FA Cup can be seen as a good season.
“The title… it’s not easy, but if we prepare hard enough, we’ve got everything that is needed to win it.”
“We’re taking into account that Arsenal has had a bad patch and has worked through it.
“If we manage to win the title (the FA Cup) and come second, then yes, it will have been a good season.”
Gabriel is still to make a big impact since arriving from Villarreal during the January transfer window making just three appearances for the club so far, and has revealed he is working hard to learn English and is quite settled in.
“My main difficulty was the English, that I didn’t understand anything, but I’m working very hard to improve and I’m enjoying myself here,” he added.
“He (Wenger) doesn’t tell me what to do to learn the language but he helps me on many occasions.
“The Spanish players help me as well; that’s what makes the club a family club because everybody helps each other.
“I’m adapting really well and my family is very happy – so I’m happy.”
