Arsenal is interested in signing Gabriel Jesus, and the player’s representatives will be in the UK this week, which might aid Arsenal’s pursuit of the Manchester City striker.
Arsenal completed the season on a high note, defeating Everton 5-1 at the Emirates Stadium.
However, Tottenham’s 5-0 hammering of Norwich City was insufficient to earn a place in the top four.
Fans may be perplexed as to where Arsenal’s goals against Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United came from, but it doesn’t matter since the Gunners have already qualified for the Europa League for next season.
Arsenal’s inability to spend and recruit players this summer will be hampered by their failure to qualify for the Champions League.
Mikel Arteta, on the other hand, needs one or more new attackers, and Arsenal remains interested in acquiring Gabriel Jesus.
GABRIEL JESUS IS WANTED BY ARSENAL.
Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah may have already played their last games for Arsenal due to the fact that their contracts will expire in a few weeks.
As a consequence, Arsenal needs two strikers, with Jesus being one of their main objectives.
Arsenal has been in touch with the athlete for many months and wants to recruit him to play for them in North London, according to The Athletic.
At Manchester City, Jesus and Arteta worked together, and it’s probable that the two would love working together again.
Jesus has been described as a “fantastic” attacker by Pep Guardiola, and his current contract is slated to expire in 2023, so this might be City’s last chance to sign him to a lucrative contract before he departs.
Following City’s Premier League title triumph on Sunday, Brazilian news site Globo Esporte stated that Jesus’ time with the club has likely come to an end.
The striker’s representatives are expected to arrive in England this week for talks with City and to make offers to Jesus. These conversations and presentations will take hold in the United Kingdom.
Despite the fact that Arsenal will not be competing in the Champions League next season, the report claims that a move to Arsenal is the “most likely” alternative.
The fact that Jesus will only play in the Europa League has no bearing on the transfer deal, according to Globo Esporte, and Arsenal intends to make Jesus their “great signing” of the summer.
The issue of whether Arsenal would agree to pay up to €60 million (£50 million) for Jesus remains unanswered. The asking price for City has risen to £50 million.
