Wilshere gives his opinion on Arsenal’s move for Gabriel Jesus

Jack Wilshere has given an opinion on Arsenal’s chances of signing Gabriel Jesus in this transfer window.

The Brazilian forward has been on the radar of the Gunners, and he is likely to leave Manchester City in this transfer window.

His relationship with Mikel Arteta when the latter was a coach at City means he might find life similar at the Emirates as it is at the Etihad.

Several clubs also want Jesus, including Tottenham and the ambitious Newcastle United.

The striker has been accustomed to winning trophies and playing in the Champions League for much of his time as a City player and he might want to join a team that plays in the UCL as well.

But Wilshere is confident that Arsenal stands a chance of landing the Brazilian. He tells Talk Sport:

 “He has a year left on his contract?

“They could get him cheaper if they hold out. I’ve done that before (run down my contract) – you get more money that way, it’s a fact. That’s why the players do it. I think they will be queuing up (for Jesus).

“I think Arsenal will have a big chance of signing him because of his relationship with his manager.

“I think Newcastle would go for him. But I would love to see him at Arsenal.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Jesus has remained one of the finest forwards in England over the last few seasons, and he should bring an improvement to the Arsenal attack if he joins them.

But signing him would not be straightforward, and they might force us to spend a lot of money before completing the transfer.

  1. If the Gabriel Jesus to Arsenal saga doesn’t end (a fee agreed) in a week’s time, then we’re in for prime old Arsenal. If we want him, the exact thing needed should already be known to the club by now given the interest shown these past weeks.

    I don’t think Osimhen would want to come. But if he does, then I prefer we pay £85m for him than pay £50m for Jesus or preferably sign both of them. Not only will Osimhen convert our crosses to goals, he’s also the strong out-and-out striker we need

    1. I would Love Jesus to come to Arsenal, but I’m sure this deal may take a while to complete.
      Due to Internationals and I’m sure he’ll be on holiday somewhere exotic 🙂

  2. Wilshere is not really saying anything much at all. in truth. What he has said is so obvious that it is akin to saying grass is green or rain is wet. If THIS is the level of comment from ex-players that is considered enough to pen an article about, then this site is sinking fast.

    Surely articles should at least be trying to say something of import or something to make us think!?

    But this bland statement of the blindingly obvious? No thanks !

      1. PAT, SO YOU FIND IT PREDICTABLE thatI will always stand up for comments that actually SAY something and scorn those which say nothing.
        Well noticed (he added, sarcastically!)

        1. Irony is admirable; sarcasm, whilst it is a form of irony, is intended to be cutting and/or hurtful so the point of it is lost if the person trying to be sarcastic feels the need to point that out.
          Just trying to be helpful

  3. Personally I think this transfer is nonsensical as he isn’t what we need, but if we are persistent in this I would be sniffing around Rashford and Toney as they can mix their game up and may be a bit cheaper.

    As I said he isn’t what we need for Artetaball and see a Willian all over again.

  4. My first choice is Nunez. Don’t care what he would cost as if he fires us into top4 then the money would be worth it. Pay him more than the £115k a week Liverpool are offering and put a clause in his contract that says if we don’t get top4 in his first season we sell him to a CL club for what we paid for him. Then we don’t lose money and we try our hardest for top4.

    Said all this before too sign Onana
