It’s always been important for Arsenal to have a strong summer transfer window this year and to kick things off, as per Fabrizio Romano, the club has reached a full verbal agreement with Manchester City over the potential signing of Gabriel Jesus.
The reported fee is said to be £45 million and with the departure of both Aubameyang and Lacazette in recent times, this news is welcomed.
The 25-year-old has, in many ways, exceeded expectations at the Etihad despite some being led to believe that he’s been performing below his best.
If he can get a similar level of service at the Emirates in comparison to what he got at City, Mikel Arteta could have a real diamond on his hands.
Jesus isn’t the finished article by any stretch but he’s young, he’s hungry and he wants to prove a point, all of which are great factors for someone to succeed as a forward in the Premier League.
Do you think Gabriel Jesus is a good edition to Arsenal’s first team squad?
