Arsenal warned Spurs can beat them to Jesus for a good reason

Gabby Agbonlahor has revealed that Gabriel Jesus wants to play on the wing and not as a centre-forward at his next club, and this could prompt him to join Tottenham.

The Brazilian is on the radar of Arsenal and the Lilywhites, as he is expected to leave Manchester City.

Spurs can offer him Champions League football, but he will play second fiddle to Harry Kane at the Tottenham Stadium.

At Arsenal, he can become their key striker because they have lost the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

In what could be a blow to the Gunners, former Aston Villa man Agbonlahor reveals the attacker favours playing on the wing over playing through the middle.

He tells Football Insider: “Gabriel Jesus, apparently, doesn’t want to play as a centre-forward.

“I heard that from a good source. Apparently, he wants to play on the wing, he prefers it there.”

Adding: “Arsenal better be careful could easily hijack that deal. He’s not going to play as a striker for Spurs, he’s going to play as a right-winger.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

If Spurs have the money and will promise Jesus regular playing time, he could choose to join them.

But we have an advantage because he has worked with Mikel Arteta before, and he would be guaranteed to enjoy working with the Spaniard again at the Emirates.

  1. Any truth in this?


    I’ve said it once and I will say it again… not what we need, not worth the price and if his salary is what has been quoted in another article earlier, Spuds can have him, we may have dodged a bullet🤪

    1. Agree. Not sure why the fans are so keen for him. He good but not great and not worth 220k a week.

      1. Fans are keen for several reasons. He is a very good player with premier league and international experience. This experience is with the PL champions and Brazil one of the best international teams in the world. He is also potentially entering his prime years and may have a higher ceiling than has been realised due to competition at his current club.
        Arsenal are currently limited in their ability to attract the greatest players.

  2. “and he would be guaranteed to enjoy working with the Spaniard again” when did Jesus claim he enjoyed working with MA? on the contrary it may not be joy to work under MA as Ozil, Guendeozi, Auba and Saliba found out. Hope really joins spurs and flops and we get a better striker😂

    1. “So he is really fantastic for us. All the players know that — everyone knows that in the club” quote from Jesus about Arteta from 2019

  3. I don’t think Jesus will be a starter at Spurs, he has only scored 58 goals in six seasons. Why would they want him?

    He isn’t a striker.
