Transfer: Man City’s Gabriel Jesus finally picks club to join this summer
Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus has finally chosen his preferred destination between Arsenal and Tottenham.
The two north London clubs have been battling for the Brazilian’s signature but the 25-year-old has now picked Arsenal over Tottenham.
Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta has made the Brazil international one of his top targets for the summer and has held extensive talks with his agent and City about a possible deal.
Apart from Arsenal and Tottenham, Chelsea have also shown interest in the 25-year-old.
There were reports in England last week that Antonio Conte’s Tottenham were working in the background to beat Arsenal to the signing of Jesus.
But Daily Star has now reported that Jesus has picked Arsenal over their north London rivals, as the player would get more starts due to the lack of forwards in Mikel Arteta’s squad.
Jesus has just one year remaining on his contract with City, but is keen to leave in order to get more playing time ahead of Brazil’s World Cup campaign later this year.
Arsenal also hold a key advantage over Tottenham as Jesus has already worked with Arteta at City.
