Arsenal have reportedly finalised the signing of Gabriel Jesus after agreeing personal terms with the Manchester City striker.

The Gunners had already agreed a £45million (N22.9billion) fee with City and the deal is now 100 per cent done according to Fabrizio Romano.

Jesus, who previously worked with Mikel Arteta when the latter was an assistant coach at City, will reportedly sign a five-year contract with Arsenal.


Jesus, who previously worked with Mikel Arteta when the latter was an assistant coach at City, will reportedly sign a five-year contract with Arsenal.

Earlier this month forward Eddie Nketiah signed a new five-year contract with the club.

Jesus has long been identified as a key target for Arteta, who will hope that the Brazil international will provide his team with an extra edge in attack.

Arsenal have already signed midfielder Fabio Vieira from Porto, while young winger Marquinhos joined from Sao Paulo.

Goalkeeper Matt Turner is poised to sign from New England Revolution and Arsenal are also looking to finalise a deal for Leeds winger Raphinha. Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez is another player who Arteta is interested in signing.

Since joining City from Palmeiras in 2017 Jesus has scored 95 goals in 236 appearances. He has won the Premier League four times and the Carabao Cup three times, while he has won the FA Cup once.
