How likely is Jesus to Arsenal move?
Speaking on the Paper Talk on May 27, The Athletic’s Adam Crafton:
“I think Gabriel Jesus’ agent is trying to get him his best move and with Arsenal I think the question mark will be over the player’s valuation.
“Arsenal may end up seeing more value elsewhere in the market but after the initial reports emerged that he was in talks with Arsenal, he had a really good spell of form at Manchester City.
“He was absolutely fantastic for the last few weeks of the season and that may influence the way Pep Guardiola looks at the prospect of losing Jesus.
“He could still be a massively important part of that squad even with Erling Haaland there and of course he was used on the right wing. But if he really wants to play as a centre forward then he might push a move through.”
