Report: Gabriel Jesus now aware Tottenham want him after Arsenal talks

Gabriel Jesus is aware Tottenham Hotspur want him this summer, with The Telegraph reporting that Antonio Conte’s men plan to rival Arsenal for the Manchester City star.

Spurs were given reason to celebrate on the final day of the Premier League campaign. Of course, they were overwhelming favourites to get themselves across the line and book their ticket to the Champions League.

A draw was all that was required for Tottenham away at Norwich. But they thrashed the Canaries 5-0 at Carrow Road to wrap it up in emphatic fashion.

Of course, it is a massive blow for Arsenal given some of the players that they have been linked with. But it also opens the door for Tottenham to sign some amazing targets over the coming months.

For some time, it appeared that the Gunners were closing in on Gabriel Jesus. Previous reports claimed that Arsenal had all but agreed personal terms with the Manchester City star. And they had made progress in talks over the fee with the Premier League champions demanding £51.5 million.

But Tottenham may be looking to snatch Jesus from Arsenal’s grasp. The Telegraph reports that they plan to battle the Gunners for the Brazilian. And the player is now aware that Conte wants him.

Signing Jesus would be a real statement from Tottenham. Pep Guardiola has previously described him as ‘incredible‘. And he has shone this season. He has scored 13 goals and contributed 12 assists in all competitions.

Having him pushing Harry Kane and also rivalling Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski for a wide spot would make a real difference for Tottenham.

And with Champions League football now on offer, Spurs will surely fancy their chances of beating Arsenal to his signature.
