BREAKING: #Jesus Signs For #Arsenal From ManCity—-According to Fabrizio Romano’s report, Arsenal have reportedly finalised the signing of Gabriel Jesus after agreeing personal terms with the Manchester City striker.
The Genius Media Nigeria gathered that The Gunners had already agreed a £45million fee with City and the deal is now 100 per cent done.
Jesus, who previously worked with Mikel Arteta when the latter was an assistant coach at City, will reportedly sign a five-year contract with Arsenal.
Sportsmail understands City will use the funds to seal a move for Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips. City have agreed a deal of £42million plus add-ons for the England international.
Pep Guardiola’s side have already signed Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund, which meant that they were able to sell Jesus.
The deal is set to end Arsenal’s search for a striker following the departure of Alexandre Lacazette, who is returning to Lyon. Arsenal elected not to buy a striker in the January transfer window despite Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joining Barcelona.
Earlier this month forward Eddie Nketiah signed a new five-year contract with the club.
Jesus has long been identified as a key target for Arteta, who will hope that the Brazil international will provide his team with an extra edge in attack.
Arsenal have already signed midfielder Fabio Vieira from Porto, while young winger Marquinhos joined from Sao Paulo.
