Jesus, 25, has interest from Tottenham and reportedly ‘four other top sides’ but has not yet decided his future amid speculations linking him away from Manchester City.

Speaking to the press after Brazil 5-1 win over South Korea yesterday, he said: ‘I’m looking to see what’s best for me and above all, for my career. From Tuesday, we’ll see what is the best.’


Arsenal are reportedly ‘very close’ to luring Jesus to the Emirates, although they will be expected to fork over €50-60 million, according to Brazilian journalist Rodrigo Oliveira via Sport Witness.

Arteta is looking to revamp his attack following Alexandre Lacazette departure and is ready to fork over €50-60 million, according to Brazilian journalist Rodrigo Oliveira via Sport Witness.

Responding to the speculation in a press conference, Gabriel Jesus teammate Gabriel Magalhaes admitted they’ve been joking about the transfer behind the scenes, and he suggests he’d like to see it go through.
“We joke in the dressing room, but nothing is certain,” Magalhaes said.

“He is certainly a quality player and, if he goes to Arsenal, he will help us a lot.”

Jesus has largely been a peripheral figure at City, mostly playing second fiddle to Sergio Aguero since he made the switch from Palmeiras in 2016. However, after the club failed to replace the Argentine upon his departure at the end of the 2020/21 season he was afforded more opportunities by Pep Guardiola.

But with Erling Haaland set to join the club this summer, Jesus is likely to have be content with a place on the bench if he remans in Manchester.

Jesus would offer Arsenal some much-needed versatility at the top of the pitch and is clearly a striker capable of bagging plenty of goals in the Premier League, having scored 13 times in all competitions over the course of this season.
