goalgist 75

Gabriel Jesus has been filmed at the Emirates Stadium, wearing an Arsenal jersey donned with his Gunners shirt number.

The Brazilian’s transfer from Manchester City is complete, with an official announcement from the North London club expected imminently.

Footage has been leaked of Jesus having a wander around the Emirate Stadium pitch, seemingly in preparation for social media confirmation of his £45 million move from the Premier League champions.

The clip shows the four-time English Premier League winner wearing the number 9, which is the same one he wore at Man City during his final three seasons at the club. Previous to that, he had donned the number 33 for Pep Guardiola’s side.

The number 9 is also the one which Jesus has worn most often for the Brazilian national side, for whom he has scored 19 goals in 56 appearances.

The number was left vacant at Arsenal following the departure of Alexandre Lacazette earlier this summer.

Previous incumbents of the number at Arsenal include the likes of Jose Antonio Reyes, Francis Jeffers, Davor Suker, Nicolas Anelka, Lukas Podolski and Paul Merson.
