Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus has been offered to Premier League rivals Chelsea, according to The Telegraph via Metro UK.

Gabriel Jesus is Arsenal’s priority transfer target this summer but the Gunners value the Brazilian striker at around £40million.

Meanwhile, Manchester City are holding out for £50million and believe Chelsea will be willing to match the asking price for Jesus.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is determined to sign a new, mobile striker this summer with the club likely to offload Romelu Lukaku less than 12 months after his move to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea will likely beat Arsenal when it comes to a transfer fee, while the Blues can offer Jesus Champions League football.

Jesus has 12 months left on his deal at the Etihad and he has reluctantly decided to leave the club following the arrival of Erling Haaland from Dortmund.
