Gabriel Jesus' Arsenal transfer deemed 'very possible' as Edu eyes first summer signing

By Lewis Pangratiou

Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus' supposed transfer to Arsenal is 'very possible', according to the latest reports.

As previously reported, the Gunners will target two centre-forwards. football.london understands that City striker Jesus and Roma frontman Tammy Abraham are among the shortlisted profiles who could arrive at Emirates Stadium. Jesus, in particular, remains open to leaving the current Premier League champions, with his representative reportedly holding talks with Edu throughout the past few months.

In November, Arsenal first made enquiries for Jesus, with Edu maintaining a close relationship with the player's agent and the City forward himself. Jesus could get more minutes between now and the end of the season as City look to increase his potential transfer fee, with the Gunners expected to lodge a bid in the region of £35million this summer.

The Cityzens' signing of Erling Haaland means that Jesus is likely to become the number two striker at the Etihad next season. At 25, Jesus may prefer to become the main man at a club, instead of being simply a rotational player like he was when Sergio Aguero grabbed the headlines in Manchester.

Now, The Athletic's David Ornstein has said that a deal is 'very possible'. Speaking on Sky Sports News (8:33am, May 13, 2022), as cited by HITC, the journalist said: "Arsenal have pretty much got him at the top of their list right now for the striking position. We don't know if City will let him go, but with one year to go and no obvious sign of contracts talks, it seems that a deal is very possible. There will be other suitors for him as well."

Edu is looking to bring in quality players in the summer. Although goalkeeper Matt Turner is expected to be announced as Arsenal's first official summer signing despite the fact being that the deal was completed months ago, Jesus could be the first big name to arrive when the transfer window opens. Luckily, he's certainly someone worth getting excited about.
