Kevin Campbell, a former Arsenal striker, has named three reasons why Gabriel Jesus of Manchester City wants to join the Gunners this summer.
Jesus is in the final year of his Manchester City contract and is anticipated to leave the club following the £51 million signing of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.
Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, and Real Madrid have all expressed interest in the Brazilian international, but Mikel Arteta’s side are said to be leading the battle to sign him.
Jesus is thought to be a priority acquisition for Arsenal, and Campbell feels the 25-year-old might join the Gunners since he is familiar with the manager and the system, as well as his desire to be the main man.
Campbell told the Highbury Squad, “Manchester City wants excellent money because he’s young, fit, and a Brazil international.”
“You might argue he’s on par with the best in the world.” He will begin his journey in Brazil.
“He’s the best pressing striker in the world, and that’s exactly what Mikel Arteta requires — he’s one of our important players.”
“Jesus is free to play in the Champions League.” But he wants to join Arsenal for three reasons: one, he knows the manager, two, he understands the system, and three, and most importantly, he wants to be the main man.”
