EPL: Gabriel Jesus Takes Decision To Join Manchester City’s Rival

Manchester City striker, Gabriel Jesus, has taken a decision to join Arsenal this summer.

The Athletic reports that Jesus is open to leaving Manchester City and joining their Premier League rivals, Arsenal as he has not quite established himself as a regular starter at the Etihad.

The Brazilian, who worked with Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, when the Spaniard was Man City’s assistant coach, could see his playing time at the Citizens reduce even further next season, as Erling Haaland is closing in on a stunning move to the Premier League champions.

The 25-year-old has emerged as a target for Arsenal as Arteta looks for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s replacement at the Emirates.

Arteta had sanctioned Aubameyang’s departure to Barcelona in January.

Arsenal are keen to strengthen their attack line at the end of the season, with Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah both expected to leave Emirates when their current contracts expire.

The Gunners have expressed interest in signing Jesus from Manchester City.

Jesus has scored 89 goals in 229 appearances for Pep Guardiola’s side since joining the club from Palmeiras in 2017.
