Arsenal are searching for a new No. 9 in preparation for the 2022–2023 season when they will need to significantly improve their attack. Gabriel Jesus, who plays for Manchester City, has been named as one of the players they want to acquire.

After the Gunners mutually agreed to split ways with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in January, Alexandre Lacazette will now be allowed to depart the club as a free agent.

According to reports, Eddie Nketiah is on the verge of finalizing a new contract. Even if he decides to remain, Arsenal will need to bring in at least one new striker, and rumors have been swirling that the club is interested in the guy who plays for Manchester City.

In the event that the Brazil international chooses to remain at the Etihad Stadium, the Premier League champions already have agreements in place to purchase Erling Haaland and Julián Alvarez, and these two players are expected to make it difficult for the Brazil international to get playing time.

According to Brazilian writer Rodrigo Oliveira, Jesus is anticipated to depart Manchester City and does not lack alternatives on where he will play next season. However, Mikel Arteta’s team is presently in the lead to acquiring Jesus’ signing.

In a conversation with Calciomercato.it, in which he also offered further details on Arsenal’s attempts to recruit the player, he made these assertions.

“Many top clubs are on Gabriel Jesus, but the one in pole position is Arsenal,” Oliveira said.

“The player wants to leave Manchester City. Jesus is very close to signing with the Gunners, he is very suited to English football and wants to stay in England and Arsenal want to make a good offer, so Arsenal will probably take on Gabriel Jesus, who lost space with Brazil in the recent months.

“Many players have overtaken him in the hierarchy [national team], which is why he wants to stay in England. At the same time, Arsenal are ready to make a great offer, perhaps even for €50-60m and are in pole position.”
