Arsenal are set to complete the signing of striker Gabriel Jesus from premier league champions Manchester city for a fee in the region of 45 million pounds. The Brazilian will undergo a medical in the coming days to complete the transfer.
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.
The deal is set to end Arsenal’s search for a striker following the departure of Alexandre Lacazette, who is returning to Lyon. Arsenal elected not to buy a striker in the January transfer window despite Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joining Barcelona.
Arsenal have already signed midfielder Fabio Vieira from Porto, while young winger Marquinhos joined from Sao Paulo.
