Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand insists Manchester City star Erling Haaland is the signing of the summer, ahead of former City and now Arsenal attacker Gabriel Jesus.

On his YouTube channel, the former Red Devils defender hailed Gabriel Jesus’ impact at the Emirates since his arrival at the Emirates Stadium.

However, Ferdinand feels the Brazilian who has scored two goals in his first four appearances is not as lethal as Erling Haaland who has six goals already and deserves the honour of being referred to as the signing of the summer.

“I think that Jesus’ impact has been unreal and I think he’s been a fantastic signing, an absolute major signing for Arsenal. But please, don’t go overboard like all Arsenal fans,” he told his YouTube channel.

“When you’ve got Haaland banging in a hat-trick at the weekend, and you’re going Jesus is overshadowing him still, what are you talking about?”
