Arsenal on the brink of signing No.9 Brazil international

Man City could sell Gabriel Jesus in the next window as they are closing in on signing Erling Haaland. The 25-year-old striker is one of the stars the club could sell in the summer. Man City are likely to demand around €50m from Arsenal, who are keen on signing Brazil international.

The Brazilian striker has always been a fantastic acquisition for Man City. Despite playing second fiddle to the club’s first-choice centre-forward for most of his time at the Etihad Stadium, the Brazilian still boasts fantastic numbers.

His late-season form is a testament to his commitment as the South American striker has come back into the coach’s plans since last month. Pep Guardiola has preferred Gabriel to start some of Man City’s important matches in the past month, including the league and FA Cup ties with Liverpool and the UCL semi-finals with Real Madrid.

The Spanish manager’s preference incidentally changed after reports strongly linked Jesus with Arsenal. The South American centre-forward’s displays have added to his existing value, and the latest suggestion is that Man City could demand more money than previously suggested.

The Gunners have been willing to pay considerably less than €50m for the South American striker, who will enter the final year of his deal with Man City. But the €50m price tag may not pose a problem for the Gunners. Man City are reportedly on the verge of announcing the capture of Haaland this week, which leaves Gabriel free to leave the PL champions.
