Gabriel Jesus signs for Arsenal

Gabriel Jesus signs for Arsenal

Gabriel Jesus (Sao Paulo, 3-4-1997) He has been one of the most valued players in this market start. The Manchester City attacker was to Carlo Ancelotti’s liking to reinforce Real Madrid’s attack, but his non-EU status closed the doors of the Santiago Bernabu.

Arsenal is, finally, the destination chosen by Gabriel Jesus. The ‘gunners’ will finally pay €52 million to Manchester City as a transfer. For his part, the Brazilian striker, 25, commits until 2027.

Gabriel Jesus landed at the Etihad in 2017 from Palmeiras. The City disbursed 32 million for the signing of him. Since then, he has played 236 games with the ‘sky blues’. However, it has almost never had the vitola of titularsimo. As soon as he arrived he was ‘in the shadow’ of Agero and then Guardiola opted more for placing him on the wing than as ‘9’. Even so, he leaves very good numbers: he has scored 95 goals and has distributed 46 assists.

At Arsenal he will have the mission of making Lacazette and Aubameyang forget. Fight for the ‘9’ with Nketiah and, a priori, be indisputable for Arteta.

The ‘gunners’, to date, have moved fast in the transfer market. Gabriel Jesus is Arsenal’s fourth signing. He joins the signings of Fbio Vieira (Porto), goalkeeper Matt Turner (New England Revolution) and promising Marquinhos (Sao Paulo).
