Agent confirms Gabriel Jesus interested in the Arsenal project

There have been many many articles regarding Mikel Arteta’s wish to take Gabriel Jesus from his old club Manchester City, and his departure from the Etihad has been further confirmed with the news that Erling haaland has agreed to join Pep Guardiola’s side.

The Brazilian’s agent Marcelo Pettinati has been speaking to the Guardian and has confirmed that talks have taken place, and that Jesus “likes the project” but warns Arsenal fans that there will be competition from other clubs for his client’s signature. “We had talks with Arsenal about Gabriel Jesus,” Pettinati said. “We like the project – it’s a possibility we’re discussing. There are six more clubs interested in Gabriel. He’s focused on the final games with Man City; we’ll see.”

I am pretty certain that, if we get our place in the Champions League next season, that Jesus will jump at the chance to join Arteta’s revolution at the club, especially given their former relationship at City and the massive improvement of Arsenal under the Spaniard.

I am certain Jesus will fit in perfectly next season and will be an automatic starter when fit, which is what the player wants the most. And if Arteta thinks he is perfect for the job, then who am I to disagree?

  1. Does Arsenal deserves better than Jesus? Yes. Arsenal needs a quality striker that’s more clinical and prolific. Looking back at Jesus scoring stats, in 2016-17, 10 matches, 7 goals, 4 assists, 2017-18, 29 matches,13 goals, 3 assists, 2018-19 ,29 matches, 7 goals, 3 assists, 2019-20 ,34 matches, 14 goals, 7 assists, 2020-21, 29 matches, 9 goals, 4 assists and in 2021-22, 26 matches, 8 goals, 8 assists, with 4 goals scored in one match against relegated Watford. Jesus has played 157 premier league games and has scored only 58 goals. Playing in a team like Manchester city with quality players around him, he has not flourished as striker. I just don’t see how he is going to improve those stats in a weaker Arsenal team. Or is it a case of an Edu special deal with the wages that he demands. Arsenal should be more ambitious and forward thinking. Arsenal need to buy Darwin Nunez and Christopher Nkunku instead. Their wages will not be exorbitant and they’re amongst the best young talents in the world. I can’t understand why Arsenal are not fighting for the best and keep going for less.

    1. Then you haven’t been watching City.. He wasn’t a starter when aguero was there 😁 and he was coming on as a sub often.. Stats can lie.. Look at mins played not matches played

        1. For those who, like Wayne, fail to understand, you are correctAd PAT, to use goals per minutes played and NOT the easily distorted games played, where a player may play only say 8 mins but a whole game is counted, as being true stats.

          On that basis as all clued up Gooners can easily see, Jesus would be a fine and valuable acquisition. It wil happen too. I feel certain of it.
          And on virtually ALL OTHER JA rumours, I am the first to dismiss them as the nonsense, they USUALLY, but not always, are.
          The Jesus rumour is sound and expected to happen by proper thinkers, among our fanbase.

  2. Jesus has been underrated and disrespected by shitty signing haaland and alvarez AHEAD of next season so i expect him to push for a move and i hope he comes to us,some might see him as shitty reject but i see him as one of our next hero.

    1. He has not been underrated, fact is he has not performed at City’s expected level. A real striker should score at least 15 goals a season not Jesus’s under 10 goals every other season. We can do better than this, I think Edu is going for him just because he is a Brazilian.

  3. I am not convinced by Jesus. His stats speak for themselves. He seem to be good with a few tap-ins and headers, but his shooting has much to be desired. His often shooting into the stands, we’ve already got Nuno for that, I don’t think we need a striker doing that. He has to at least hit the target.
    Another player that is also not convincing is Youri Tielemans he looks slow and a bit heavy much like Jesus.

  4. Scoring under 10 goals as a squad player is’nt that bad,he can only get better with more gametime which he will get in abundance at arsenal.

    1. Then why do we criticize Lacazette often here for not scoring enough. I will prefer we extend Nkethia contract and sign Nunez than Jesus. Pep is not stupid for buy another strikers. If he thinks Jesus is adequate he won’t.

      1. Jesus has refused to sign a new contract. City wanted him to stay. He has the 9th most minutes at City in the league this year so obviously vital to their title bid but he’s not the key man. A very good player and we’ll pick him up at a value price because he has 1 year left on his contract. Saka has 1 more goal involvement than him the league with many more minutes everyone else in our squad is behind him.

        At the same time obviously he is not Haaland/mbappe or Nunez if Nunez is the real deal, even then we’ll have to pay more than City did for Haaland, Chelsea for Lukaku or Liverpool for mane/salah/jota combined to secure him so bit of a gamble in my book. Nunez is a non-starter in my book, the fees being quoted for him are absurd at time when Strikers are abundant and the pandemic has lowered finances and he’d still have to replicate that form in a harder league. Honestly don’t expect anyone to sign Nunez at the prices being quoted, way better value/lower risk in the market.

  5. The real question should be ,
    Who would we prefer between Gabriel Jesus and Christopher Nkunku ?

    Gabriel Jesus or Darwin Nunez ( if he’s available) ?

    I know who I’d prefer, and its not Jesus.

  6. I like Jesus, he can play right a cross the front line effectively, the problem is if we do sign him we will have to return to the market for an attack bully, that has a presence through the middle such as Osimhen.

    Retaining Eddie could facilitate such a move, but am not the gaffer just throwing it out

  7. Manchester city paid a release clause of 60m euros for Haaland and that is what they want arsenal to pay for Jesus. With Edu l do not see Arsenal getting top players if they are not Brazilian.willian2.0 in the making.By the way stats lies for some not everyone. Pepe excluded.

  8. Arteta has first hand knowledge about him. I trust him to decide, and if he is after Jesus, I hope we get him.

    1. Really AndersS. Answer this question, do you think GJ will improve us. Buying him will only mean one thing and that is Arteta do his buddy at mancity a fAvour.
