Report: Tottenham have made formal offer for goal scoring 'superstar', Paratici wants deal done ASAP

Tottenham Hotspur are trying to gazump Arsenal in their bid to sign Gabriel Jesus and according to reports from Italy, have now made a ‘formal offer’.

That’s according to Tuttojuve anyway, who report today how Spurs have made their move for Jesus and want to get a deal done ASAP for the Manchester City star. It’s claimed the offer for Jesus is around 47 million Euros, which is roughly around the £40m mark.

Of course, the race to sign Jesus is strongly contested at the moment. Just earlier today, Fabrizio Romano had claimed that it was actually Arsenal who are in the lead to sign the City ace. However, this report from Tuttojuve seems to suggest that Tottenham are major players when it comes to the Brazilian.

Why Are The Most Expensive Transfers Always Failures?

The notion that Spurs want the deal doing ASAP suggests they are keen to gazump their major rivals too. Naturally, if Tottenham did land Jesus, then Arsenal fans would be fuming.

The Gunners have been linked with the City man for some time now. Indeed, there is almost an expectancy among some of the Arsenal fan base that Jesus will be the man they sign as their new number nine.

TBR’s View: Tottenham Landing Gabriel Jesus Would Seriously Sting Arsenal

First they beat them to the top four, and now they’re trying to muscle in on the big signing Arsenal want. If Tottenham pull this off, then Gunners fans will be fuming.

Tottenham fans, obviously, would love it. But when it comes to Jesus the player and what he’d bring to Spurs, you have to question why he’d move. Despite being labelled a ‘superstar‘ by Steve McManaman, there’s still that element of doubt over his credentials as a main number nine.

He wants out of City due to not being the main striker. And he won’t be that at Tottenham while ever Harry Kane is in the building. Ultimately, a move to Arsenal makes more sense.
