Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus’s agent, Marcelo Pettinati has confirmed that a move to Arsenal could take place this summer. However, other clubs are also in the race for the Brazilian and it will be a race to see who the player chooses to sign for.
“We had talks with Arsenal about Gabriel Jesus, we like the project – it’s a possibility we’re discussing”, Marcelo Pettinati said, in quotes reported by Fabrizio Romano.
“There are 6 more clubs interested in Gabriel – he’s focused on final games with Man City, we’ll see”.
Gabriel Jesus getting closer to Manchester City exit
With his contract expiring in June 2023, Gabriel Jesus will be able to walk out for free if he isn’t sold in the summer. Manchester City have also confirmed the arrival of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund next season.
As a result, game time will become increasingly limited for the Brazilian. With Arsenal set to return to the Champions League if they can continue their run of form, it would be a great move for Jesus to reunite with Mikel Arteta.
The striker has scored 13 goals and provided 12 assists across 39 appearances in all competitions. His place in the starting line-up has never been consistent, and with a new beginning at Arsenal, he could have regular game time as the designated number 9.
Negotiations between the two clubs for the transfer will be key to determine what cost the €50-million rated striker will leave for – if he is happy with the project.
