Arsenal has been linked with Gabriel Jesus for very long and the race is reportedly been joined by Tottenham. The Brazilian is looking to leave Etihad as he enters the final year of his contract. Joined the citizens in 2016 and has enjoyed some serious trophy runs in his time in the city.
Jesus is a world-class striker but lacks game time, especially after the signing of Grealish and now Haaland accompanied by Julian Alvares. These arrivals have made the squad strong but very stacked and game time is hard to come by.
With the world cup coming he needs game time to retain his space in Brazil’s squad. Rather than staying at the Etihad, it’ll be better if he goes into a team where he’s needed. Jesus has played in a variety of roles upfront to be accommodated and will be a very decision for his coach to put him to play at whatever position needed.
Jesus and Arteta
Arsenal is all out of striker options with Lacazzate and Nketiah set to leave this summer. The gunners were well in the zone to secure champions league space but a few losses brought them down. The reason for the loss was mainly due to the lack of goals scored as they lack a natural striker.
Jesus has everything that Arteta needs and Arteta has even trained him back when he was working with Pep. He also shares a good relationship with gunners director Edu who can lure his compatriot to the emirates.
Jesus and the Spurs
Jesus will cost around £60 million and with that amount sum the quality gunners would be getting is beyond measure. Spurs are also looking to bolster their squad to add that missing piece to their attacking trio. Moura, Bergwijn, and even Gareth Bale have tried to fill that void and all of them were successful but partially. Conte’s side is ready to splash the cash this summer and can spend up to £150m.
With the season being concluded there are plenty of debates to get stuck into such as “which of London will Jesus play”?
