It has been revealed that Arsenal have had early discussions with Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus, who has shown a strong desire to leave the Etihad Stadium in the near future. This is very interesting news, as it indicates that the Gunners are interested in signing Jesus.
In a podcast, Brazilian journalist Jorge Nicola said that, although criteria have been agreed upon with the 25-year-old, a formal agreement with Manchester City is still necessary.
While Jesus has only appeared in 16 games for the Premier League champions this season, it seems that he is eager to represent Brazil in the World Cup in Qatar. He hopes to play a significant amount of football for his club next season in order to prevent being overlooked for the national team..
If Jesus remains in Manchester, it seems that he will see even less action since Erling Haaland is rumoured to be on his way to the Etihad Stadium in a multi-million-pound deal. He would be even more removed from the action as a result of this.
With Fabrizio Romano confirming Arsenal’s interest in the player this morning, the rumour has acquired more traction….
Gabriel Jesus will leave Man City in the summer, the plan is clear since months as they're working on Haaland deal and contract expires in 2023. 🇧🇷 #MCFC
