Gabriel Jesus could be set for a move to Arsenal after the club came to a £45million agreement with Manchester City to pry away the 25-year-old striker, according to reports.
The Gunners had previously reportedly offered £ 30m – a shortfall of City’s £ 50m – but were inspired when Tottenham apparently entered the race.
The Brazilian finished the season in good form at Man City, scoring four goals in a 5-1 win over Watford in April, but could he be on his way to the Emirates Stadium?
According to The Athletic, Gabriel Jesus is on his way to Arsenal for big money.
The striker’s relationship with Gunners manager Mikel Arteta dates back to Spanish days as assistant coach to Pep Guardiola atMan City, giving him a different understanding of Jesus’ progress since joining the Premier League.
Athletic reports include that the arrival of Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez in the City during the transfer window would significantly affect Jesus’ playing time if they stayed.
