'It's really happening' – Arsenal 'close in on' Gabriel Jesus transfer with Man City set to sign Erling Haaland

ARSENAL are reportedly closing in on the signing of Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus in what promises to be a busy summer at the Emirates.

SunSport have exclusively revealed how Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans is nearing a £40million move to North London.

And now it appears that the Gunners are stepping up their pursuit of Brazilian centre-forward Jesus.

The 25-year-old will be allowed to depart the Etihad to avoid losing him on a free transfer with his contract to expire in 2023.

Meanwhile his game time under Pep Guardiola will be limited with City set to complete the signing of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.

Haaland is understood to have already passed his medical, with an announcement on the transfer expected this week.

It has been said that Jesus has all-but agreed personal terms over a switch to link up with Arsenal.

Should he join Arsenal, he would be reunited with Mikel Arteta, who he worked with at City when the Spaniard was Guardiola's No2.

Commenting on the potential deal, Brazilian journalist Andre Hernan has stated that talks are at an advanced stage, with negotiations "really happening".

Speaking on the BTS show on YouTube channel Camisa 21, he remarked: "There’s this story of Gabriel Jesus leaving City and going to Arsenal.

"It’s real, it’s (talks) really happening. I think he’s a great player.

"I think he’s an extremely intelligent player in terms of tactics and I think he was very badly beaten in the cup.

"A guy Guardiola thinks is great isn’t just any player."

He added: "At Arsenal, maybe he becomes the protagonist. He gets there at a different stage."

Jesus isn't the only City star that Arsenal are said to be keen on, with winger Raheem Sterling a reported target.

The Telegraph have claimed that Arteta is 'willing to make Sterling the focal point of the Gunners' attack' next term.
