Arsenal News Transfer: Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus is all set to leave the Citizens this summer. Pep Guardiola has already snapped up Erling Haaland and he looks to make him his prime striker for years to come.
However, the Brazilian striker wants to add regular minutes into his career and that could be possible with a move to Arsenal. Mikel Arteta is a fan of Gabriel’s playing style and is already eyeing a replacement for the departing Lacazette.
Gabriel Jesus currently earns a reported fee of around £100,000 per month. This margin could increase to up to £170,000 in the Emirates if he decides to sign their contract.
Gabriel Jesus is an experienced Premier League attacker and very versatile with his positioning skills. He has played as a center-forward in most of the games but can also operate at the flanks. He has played 38 games for City as a winger and his crosses are quite accurate.
Arsenal currently has Nketiah as their chief striker but that could change if Gabriel Jesus signs for Mikel Arteta’s side. Saka and Jesus could pair well in front along with a young midfield attack.
Arsenal News Transfer: Do Arsenal Needs To Sell Their Project to Lure Gabriel Jesus To The Emirates?
The major stumbling block behind this move is that Gabriel Jesus is a regular Champions League footballer. But, Arsenal will currently not provide him the opportunity to play in the world’s biggest competition as they are not eligible for it.
Arsenal failed to finish fourth in the league this season as they narrowly missed out to Tottenham Hotspur. Their poor form in the last few games went on to give them nightmares.
However, Mikel Arteta needs to convince Jesus by explaining to him about the future of the club and the project that he is working on. Also, guaranteeing regular minutes could be key to striking a deal. According to Dean Jones, Arsenal will need to sell him their project.
Manchester City could ask a fee of around £60m for the Brazilian striker but that is still negotiable. Arsenal needs experienced players to spearhead their attack and Jesus’s CV fills the slot really well.
