Gabriel Jesus Of City Is Close To Joining Arsenal In A £45 Million Deal

Gabriel Jesus, a forward for Manchester City, is on the verge of joining Arsenal for a record transfer fee of £45 million this summer, making him the highest-paid player at the Emirates.

The Brazilian international, whom Mikel Arteta has branded as his main aim to enhance his attacking lineups for next season, has reportedly been the subject of weeks-long negotiations between the North London team and Premier League Champions.

After making it apparent that he wished to leave the Premier League champions, the 25-year-old also gave priority to a move to the organization.

Should a move be completed, it will bring an end to his six-year stay at the Etihad Stadium.

Jesus has played 159 times in the Premier League, scoring 58 goals and completing 32 assists in the process.

While boasting a decent record in front of goal, South American football expert Tim Vickery believes that there is still a question mark over the forward’s best position.

Speaking on White and Jordan, Vickery said: “Six years ago a comparison was being made between Gabriel Jesus and the original Brazilian Ronaldo.

“It was from the most impeccable source imaginable: The original Ronaldo, who said ‘this fella Gabriel Jesus reminds me of me when I was a kid.”

Arsenal manager, Arteta told Gabriel Jesus is ‘the right signing’ for Arsenal as transfer battle looms after the departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and the imminent release of Alexandre Lacazette.
However, like many previous disappointments in signing players, Jesus deal would not be a total surprise if it fails as the Brazilian star may consider playing for a club in Champions League after his side lost to Real Madrid in semi-finals last season.

Madrid were crowned European champions after securing their fourteenth time records.

FIFA World Club Cup holders, Chelsea are also interesting in signing Jesus which could happen if the West London club fails to sign a striker following Romelu Lukaku forced loan move to Serie A side, Inter Milan.

Chelsea are notorious in wooing and hijacking players from their rivals when transfer window runs to the end, as in the cases of capturing Willian and Mohamed Salah from Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool respectively.

The Blues signed the duo in £32m and £10m deals in 2013 and 2014 respectively.

Chelsea finished 3rd on the log in 2021/22 season as Arsenal finished fifth after slipping to lose its UCL spot to Spurs, the North London rivals.
