Tottenham Hotspur looking to hijack Arsenal’s move for Gabriel Jesus

Gabriel Jesus-Manchester City

Brazilian international striker Gabriel Jesus has been linked with a move away from Manchester City this summer.

According to the latest reports, the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are keen on signing the 25-year-old.

The Gunners are in desperate need of a quality goal scorer, but Tottenham are hoping to use their Champions League advantage and lure the striker away from their London rivals.

Antonio Conte’s side have managed to secure Champions League qualification this past season, and they are certainly a more attractive proposition for top players compared to Arsenal, who will be playing in the Europa League.

Arsenal have parted ways with Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang over the last few months. They need to bring in a reliable goalscorer who can lead the line next season.

Jesus has proven himself in the Premier League over the years, and he could prove to be a quality long-term acquisition for the Gunners.

The Brazilian has been a squad player for Manchester City last season, and he needs to join a club where he can play more often. The likes of Arsenal and Tottenham can certainly provide him with that platform, and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.

Tottenham have been heavily reliant on the likes of Harry Kane and Son Heung Min for goals.

Bringing in Gabriel Jesus would certainly ease the goal-scoring burden on the two players and give Tottenham more quality and depth.

Furthermore, the 25-year-old can play anywhere across the front three, and his versatility will be an asset.
