Arsenal are very close to signing Manchester City star Gabriel Jesus in a deal said to cost in the region of £42m to £51m, according to a report on The Sun.

The Gunners are reportedly keen on signing Jesus after Alexandre Lacazette agreed to rejoin former club Lyon.

Arsenal have reportedly beaten Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur to the signing of Jesus despite the Gunners being without Champions League football for next season.

Speaking after he scored for Brazil against South Korea in a 5-1 win, Jesus said, “I’m looking to see what’s best for me and above all, for my career.

“From Tuesday, we’ll see what is the best.”
