Arsenal completes £45m signing of Jesus from Manchester City

Arsenal has confirmed the signing of Brazilian forward, Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City.

Interest in the Brazilian was registered early on, but the Gunners have finally gotten their man for a fee of £45m.

Following the departure of Aubameyang and recently Lacazette, it was clear the London side needed a new forward.

Jesus scored 95 goals in 236 appearances in all competitions during his five seasons at Manchester City.

The 25-year-old was also a member of the squad which won the Copa America in 2019. During his international career Gabriel has also notably won a gold medal at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, and featured at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Mikel Arteta expresses his joy, “I’m very excited. The club has done a tremendous job to recruit a player of this stature. I know Gabriel personally very well, and we all know him well from his time in the Premier League and being really successful here.“This is a position that’s been on our radar for a long time now and we have managed to get a player that we all wanted, so I’m really happy.”

Jesus will wear number 9 and will soon join up with his new side in pre-season training.
