Journalist says Arsenal have now agreed Gabriel Jesus fee

Gabriel Jesus is very much sold on joining Arsenal and is in line to earn around £220,000-a-week at the Emirates with a fee now agreed with Manchester City, according to journalist Ben Jacobs, speaking to The Football Terrace.

Gunners fans must be growing tired about speculation surrounding Jesus. Mikel Arteta’s men are still on the lookout for a marquee striker.

Reports claimed some time ago that personal terms with the Brazilian had been all but agreed. However, there have been plenty of twists since then. Tottenham are amongst the sides to have registered an interest in the Manchester City star.

But it still seems to be Arsenal’s deal to complete. In fact, Jacobs suggested that most of the terms are in place. And crucially, a fee has now been agreed between the two clubs.

“Arsenal remain the front-runners. I think that that signing is very likely. Jesus, as I understand it from sources close to the player, is very much sold under the Arteta and Arsenal strategy. And by strategy, I mean they sold that move to him based upon a focal point in the team and that is in stark contract to Manchester City,” he told The Football Terrace.

“The terms will probably see him earn around £220,000-a-week. I believe, verbally anyway, that Arsenal and Manchester City have now agreed upon a fee.”

Everything appears to be coming together for Arsenal. A fee is now agreed. And Jesus is seemingly happy with the terms on offer in his contract.

He is also pleased with the role he is set to have in Arteta’s plans. The forward is set to be a key man at the Emirates. He will have the chance to prove that he can regularly lead the line for a heavyweight in the Premier League.

Arsenal fans will hope that an end is now in sight in their pursuit of Jesus. He is an ‘incredible‘ player. And signing him would be a real statement from the Gunners.
