Former Arsenal striker, Kevin Campbell, has listed three reasons why Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus wants to join the Gunners this summer.
Jesus entered the final year of his contract at Manchester City and is now expected to leave Etihad after the £51 million arrival of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.
The Brazilian international has drawn the interest of Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham and Real Madrid, but it is Mikel Arteta’s side that are reportedly leading the race to sign him.
Jesus is said to be a priority signing for the North London club and Campbell believes the 25-year-old could join Arsenal because he knows the manager, the system and wants to be the main man.
“Manchester City wants good money because he’s young, fit and he’s a Brazil international,” Campbell told the Highbury Squad.
“You could say he’s world-class. He starts for Brazil.
“He’s the best pressing striker out there and that’s what Mikel Arteta needs – he’s one of the key pieces that we need.
“Jesus can go and play Champions League football. But he wants to come to Arsenal, one because he knows the manager, two because he knows the system and three, which is the most important thing, he wants to be the main man.”
