Arsenal are in the market for a newcomer to the summer window with Gabriel Jesus their top priority for the summer window
Arsenal reportedly had an early chance for Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus to reject but remain confident of agreeing a deal and will expand their search in the coming days.
The Gunners have started their trade this summer and the imminent arrival of FC Porto midfielder Fabio Vieira is expected to confirm the club this week. The Portuguese club have confirmed that Arsenal have reached an agreement for the transfer of Vieira at a cost of around £ 35 million.
football.london understands that Gabriel Jesus is a goal -scoring priority this summer and executive director Edu has been having good talks with the player’s camp over the past six months. Jesus is ready to leave the Etihad Stadium ahead of next season following the arrival of Julian Alvarez and Erling Haaland, and the Brazilian may be ready to reunite with Mikel Arteta at the Emirates Stadium.
According to GOAL, Arsenal’s initial offer in the region of £ 30 million has been rejected by City. The Gunners remain confident of securing a deal for the 25-year-old and expect to return with an improved offer in the coming days as the club accelerate their plans to bring Jesus at the Emirates Stadium.
Jesus has just one year left on his contract in Manchester, but the City value the Brazilian close to £ 50 million based on the age of the driver and the fact that he has not reached his goal. capacity. Negotiations are ongoing and there is a growing belief that an agreement can be reached between the parties.
Arsenal started the summer window with the signing of Marquinhos from Sao Paulo, with the arrival of Vieira from Porto imminent. The Gunners are gearing up for Jesus and Youri Tielemans as they look to strengthen the team in key areas ahead of next season.
The Brazilian wants to shape his future as quickly as possible, and given the team’s lack of prior chances available at City and Arsenal’s lack of players, it’s a bargain for Jesus moving to North London seems to be a matter of ‘when’ rather than ‘if’.
