Arsenal report: Stumbling block in Gabriel Jesus deal, according to insider

Arsenal are closing in on a deal for Gabriel Jesus of Manchester City – but it might not be quite as simple to complete as first thought.

The Gunners have been linked with the Brazilian forward for a few weeks, with Alexandre Lacazette’s exit from the club after six years in north London having been confirmed by the player himself and Arsenal. 

Eddie Nketiah is now expected to stay, having completed a u-turn on his future following contract talks stalling – but manager Mikel Arteta’s top target Jesus might still have concerns about moving to the Emirates Stadium, according to one transfer guru in the know.

“I understand Gabriel Jesus wants to play more, wants to stay in a team that wants to have him as an important striker of the team – and Man City will have to sell players because they have to buy other players,” Gianluca Di Marzio said, speaking to wettfreunde (opens in new tab). “If I have to choose for him, Arsenal would be perfect because Arsenal has a new project. They need to have a striker like him.”
