Gabriel Jesus joining Arsenal is a very hot topic at the moment.

Genuine interest

Speculation is rife that the Gunners are in advanced talks to sign the Manchester City hitman during the summer transfer window.

On Saturday, Fabrizio Romano revealed that the Brazilian striker is actually interested in signing for Arsenal, but that no talks are going at the moment.

That, of course, contradicts previous reports, but there appears to be genuine interest.

It does seem very plausible that the North Londoners are keen on the player, who has ties to both former Man City assistant Mikel Arteta and Edu, who is the Emirates Stadium club’s transfer guru after previously working with the Brazil national team as a technical director.

In fact, Edu is the one reportedly spearheading the move to sign the 25-year-old before the 2022-23 campaign – and journalist Miguel Delaney said there’s strong belief that a deal will get done.

Teddy Sheringham is a Tottenham man to the fullest, but the legendary marksman has admitted that snapping up the Sky Blues attacker would be truly ‘great’ for Arsenal.

He told Stadium Astro: “I’d back that. I think that’d be a good signing for Arsenal. He’s got very good attributes. He knows where the net is. I think he’d be great for Arsenal.”

Brilliant signing

This would be a cracking addition, if Gabriel Jesus joining Arsenal actually materialises.

Everyone knows that strikers are the order of the day for Arteta and Edu this summer, with Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah both potentially leaving on Bosman deals.

Jesus isn’t a world-class goalscorer, otherwise Pep Guardiola would definitely be keeping him at the Etihad, but he is undeniably an upgrade on both Lacazette and Nketiah.

Erling Haaland’s move to Eastlands this week means that the player will probably be going – and UOL in Brazil reported that Arsenal could wind up paying a total package deal ‘similar to Haaland’s.

Between transfer fee, agent fees and salary, this could cost the Gunners a bomb but, at 25 and proven in the Premier League, he might just take Arteta’s side to a new level.
