'Keep an eye': Arsenal could make yet another signing this week, they're really confident it's getting done - Romano

Gabriel Jesus could join Arsenal this week, with the coming days hugely important in deciding his future, says Fabrizio Romano.

On YouTube, the journalist says that the Gunners’ confidence is growing that they will sign the Brazilian international from Manchester City.

In recent days, there have been some reports that Tottenham are plotting to hijack the deal for the forward but Romano says Arsenal are closing in one of their priority signings.

They saw a bid for the striker rejected but are expected to go back in with another, and will be hoping to get the deal done.

Jesus could join Arsenal this week

Romano said: “Arsenal are really confident on the Gabriel Jesus deal.

“In the last few hours, while I am recording, Arsenal are really, really confident and working on it. Arsenal are on Gabriel Jesus. I always said he is the priority.

“Arsenal are working on this deal and will have to wait a bit for it. Gabriel Jesus and Arsenal is something to keep an eye on in the coming hours or days.

“This is a big week for Gabriel Jesus’ future.”

Jesus and Youri Tielemans look to be Arsenal’s two priority targets this summer and getting them both through the door would be a huge boost to Mikel Arteta.

It has not seemed to be an easy or quick deal to do, despite Jesus having just the one year left on his City contract and the arrival of two new strikers at the Etihad Stadium.

But Arteta will hope it gets done and that it will be worth it, as he is in need of a new number nine to score the goals he hopes will fire Arsenal back into the top four.
