‘Medical completed’, ‘It’s all signed’ – Man City player nears exit as Arsenal agree deal

|

Gabriel Jesus has long been tipped to leave Manchester City this summer after becoming disgruntled at a lack of playing time under Pep Guardiola. Arsenal positioned themselves to bring the 25-year-old to the Emirates Stadium and have been in talks with City for weeks.

Despite Arsenal missing out on Champions League football for next season, they’ve managed to convince Jesus to pick them over other suitors, likely because Mikel Arteta is manager – the 40-year-old worked with Jesus at Man City and may have given assurances over playing time.

Fabrizio Romano has given an update on the transfer saga, revealing Arsenal have made substantial progress on talks and have all but completed a deal. He said on Tuesday afternoon that a ‘medical (was) successfully completed’ and paperwork was ‘all signed between clubs’.

Arsenal are getting a talented player. Jesus scored 95 goals with 46 assists from 236 games for City (2017 – present) and scored 19 goals with 13 assists from 55 games for Brazil (2017 – present). The Gunners are paying £45m for the 25-year-old, which is £16m more than City paid five years ago, so it’s a good deal for all parties.

Jesus netted 13 goals with 12 assists from 41 games in his final season at City, so Arsenal have bagged themselves an in-form forward who could boost their hopes of a top-four finish next season.
