The Arsenal manager will be acquiring one of the best in the business if a deal can be agreed
Although his form took a significant dip towards the end of his Arsenal career, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had already established himself as one of the best strikers in the world, and he produced many quality moments in north London to back that up.
His exit in January was expected in the end, but it still hurt nonetheless, and to make matters worse, a replacement was nowhere to be seen. However, the worry of not having a reliable source of goals is set to end this summer.
Those circumstances have led Arsenal to exploit the 25-year-old’s situation, and a move now appears to be a real possibility. Jesus has scored 95 goals and provided 46 assists in 234 appearances for the Citizens while operating as a centre-forward and winger.
Offering pace, skill, work rate, versatility and a clear goal threat across the frontline, Jesus has established himself as a real fan favourite at the Etihad since he arrived from Palmeiras in 2017. Manchester City’s squad consists of several top-quality players. Despite having a more rotational role in the side in years gone by, Ilkay Gundogan believes his team-mate has what it takes to become one of the best in the world.
