Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus has successfully completed his medical ahead of his move to Premier League side Arsenal.

Jesus was seen arriving at the Arsenal training ground at London Colney on Tuesday and hugging Gunners technical director Edu.

His switch to Arsenal is expected to be finalised later this week. 

Manchester City have already reached an agreement with Arsenal for the transfer of Jesus to the London club for £45million.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Jesus will sign a five year contract with Arsenal until 2027.

Jesus would be Arsenal’s fourth signing of the summer, following Brazilian teenager Marquinhos, Portuguese midfielder Fabio Vieira and goalkeeper Matt Turner.

Manchester City stand to make a tidy profit on a player the club paid around £27million for in 2017.

Jesus played an important role for Manchester City last season but was keen on leaving this summer following the arrival of Erling Haaland.

Jesus had just one year left on his Manchester City contract and it was expected the club will let him leave this summer to avoid losing him for free next summer.

Jesus scored 95 goals in 236 appearances for Man City after arriving at the club for £27m in January 2017.

Meanwhile, Premier League rivals Chelsea reportedly want Manchester City star Raheem Sterling as replacement for Romelu Lukaku.

Reports claim Chelsea have contacted Manchester City about signing Sterling and also Manchester City defender Nathan Ake.

Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly contacted Manchester City on Monday to check on the club’s valuation of both players, with Chelsea keen to sign both.

Sterling has just one year left on his Manchester City contract and has been keen on leaving the club this summer.

Just as Sterling would be open to a move to Stamford Bridge, Ake is thought to be open to the idea of returning to Chelsea, where he spent seven years after joining as a 15-year-old.
