‘Very excited’: Arsenal confirm Gabriel Jesus signing from Manchester City
The Guardian says ARSENAL have confirmed the signing of Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City. The Brazil forward has joined for £45m and is Mikel Arteta’s fourth purchase of the summer.
Jesus, who scored 95 goals in 236 games for City across five and a half seasons, follows the midfielder Fábio Vieira, goalkeeper Matt Turner and another Brazilian forward, Marquinhos, into the club. The 19-year-old Marquinhos has been described by Edu, Arsenal’s technical director, as one for the future.
Jesus has joined Arsenal in pursuit of more regular game time after starting 24 of City’s 50 Premier League and Champions League matches last season. Arsenal said the 25-year-old would wear the No 9 shirt and had signed a long-term contract.
