During an appearance on Sky Sports News on May 13, 2022, David Ornstein said that it is “highly conceivable” that Gabriel Jesus would be available for sale from Manchester City to Arsenal during the summer transfer window. This news was reported by Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal.
According to the writer for Athletic, the transfer request for Jesus, who plays for Manchester City, is now at the top of Arsenal’s summer list.
The writer continued by saying, “We don’t know whether City will let him leave. But with one year left on his contract and no clear evidence that contractual discussions are taking place, it appears that a deal is extremely conceivable. There are going to be more clubs interested in courting him as well.”
Reports have already surfaced on HITC Sport suggesting that advanced negotiations are taking place between Arsenal and Manchester City over the possible acquisition of Jesus during the summer transfer window.
As a result of City’s acquisition of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund, Jesus is likely to have a difficult time breaking into the starting lineup for the next season.
The summer transfer window presents Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta with the opportunity to acquire at least two new attackers for the club.
Because Jesus is capable of playing on either flank, his adaptability is something that an adaptable squad like Arsenal would find highly intriguing.
We believe that Jesus will be showing interest in joining the North London club Arsenal. Arsenal is a major club and a well-known brand across the world.
Will Arsenal get Gabriel Jesus?
In other news, the player has hinted that he may quit his club amid speculation that he may join Arsenal. The Gunners are on the verge of signing Eddie Nketiah to a new five-year deal that would pay him about £100,000 per week. Additionally, the club wants to go through with a bid for Jesus.
This week, representatives for the Brazilian player, who is 25 years old, travelled to England for discussions over his future. Tottenham and Juventus are both showing interest in signing him.
Jesus has only one year remaining on his contract with City. The club is considering selling him this summer if he is unable to agree to an extension of the deal.
Arsenal has been keeping an eye out for several attackers who play in a style that is comparable to that of Jesus. This includes Jonathan David of Lille. But their enthusiasm for the Canadian has waned.
