Report: Manchester City ready to accept just £30m for Arsenal target Jesus

Manchester City are ready to accept just £30m for Gabriel Jesus with Arsenal still on pole position for his signature, according to a report from Calciomercato.it.

Jesus’ future look set to be resolved in the coming days. Reports on Thursday claimed that Arsenal were closing in on signing the Brazilian.

His agent is planning to be in Europe imminently. And, unsurprisingly, he is set to meet with the Gunners. But Calciomercato.it reports that Jesus’ representatives also hope to have a meeting with Juventus.

Calciomercato.it suggests that Manchester City are now ready to accept as little as £30 million. His contract at the Etihad Stadium expires next year.

Arsenal really have no excuse to not get a deal across the line. City started out demanding around £51 million for the 25-year-old. And, understandably, some had reservations about paying that fee for someone whose deal expires in 2023.

That kind of fee may have made a move a gamble. However, much of that risk evaporates immediately should Arsenal be able to pay just £30 million.

He has proven himself in the Premier League. Kevin Campbell described him as ‘world-class’ and the best pressing forward around.

It would be a real statement to secure his signature. Reports claimed Arsenal are ready to offer him a deal worth around £190,000-a-week at the Emirates.

Those terms will make a lot more sense should Arsenal only pay £30 million.

And it would seem that a resolution on his future may now not be too far away.
