With the signing of Marquinhos from Sao Paulo earlier this summer, the Gunners have already secured one Brazilian forward.
Arsenal is looking for a great striker this summer, and Jesus has been their main priority.
For months, rumors of a transfer for Jesus have circulated, and it appears that Arsenal is closing in on the Brazilian.
Jesus is ‘near’ to finalizing his move to Arsenal, according to Goal, and a deal could be completed in the coming days.
Arsenal has been pursuing Jesus for some time, and the possibility of a deal being completed this week is quite exciting.
Arsenal’s proposal of roughly £30 million is said to have been rejected, with City asking £50 million for the striker.
Arsenal could use performance-based add-ons to persuade City to sell Jesus this week, according to the report.
Jesus, 25, had a terrific finish to last season, scoring 13 goals and assisting 12 times in all competitions for City.
The issue is that Jesus’ contract expires in 2023, and City may feel compelled to sell now before he walks away for nothing.
Arsenal is aiming to take advantage of this, and a deal appears to be nearing completion.
Jesus will undoubtedly be interested in joining this Arsenal system, and they appear to be closing in on him.
Despite the fact that Eddie Nketiah has agreed to a new contract, Jesus would almost probably start as Arsenal’s first-choice striker.
After spending too much time in and out of Guardiola’s City side, Jesus will be ready to take the possibility of regular first-team starts with Arsenal.
