Arsenal are hopeful of signing Gabriel Jesus, who now plays for Manchester City, according to The Sun.
The Gunners lacked a cutting edge in the last third of the field last season, which was one of the reasons they failed to qualify for the Champions League. This problem is supposed to be remedied with the addition of a new striker.
Arsenal might speed up their pursuit of Jesus following Brazil’s international friendly match against Japan on Monday, according to The Sun. Arsenal might sign Jesus, who has been named as their top transfer target by the club, according to The Sun.
The 25-year-old is approaching the end of his City contract, and it seems that he will leave as a consequence of the arrivals of Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez, who will push him down the pecking order.
The Gunners believe that a fee of about £40 million would be sufficient to get the services of the Palmeiras graduate, who has a good relationship with both manager Mikel Arteta and technical director Edu Gaspar.
