‘Crying out for his type of player ‘ – Pundit hints at direction Spurs target may take
By Eddie Razo -

If reports are accurate, Tottenham Hotspur is in the mix for a forward, and one of the names connected to the north London club is Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus. 

However, for Steve McManaman, Jesus will join Arsenal over Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea this summer. In an interview with The Metro, the Liverpool legend believes the Manchester City forward will be The Gunners’ primary striker and will be influential in the Brazilian’s decision-making process. 

‘Tottenham is less of a choice for him because they’ve got Harry Kane and Heung-min Son, who’ve both had great seasons, so suddenly that becomes competition for you.

‘For Chelsea, it’ll all depend on whether of course Raheem Sterling turns up there or Romelu Lukaku goes, but they’ve got a plethora of people there, so Arsenal are the one team crying out for his type of player and of course he’s worked with Mikel Arteta so maybe that negates the fact that they’re not in the Champions League.

He can go there and be comfortable with someone he knows already.’

Is Gabriel Jesus better than what Arsenal have got? The answer is yes. Manchester City are more than happy to let him go because they brought in Erling Haaland, so have Man City improved in that area? Probably, yes,”

It’s only natural that Gabriel Jesus will start to look at Haaland and think that it’s time to leave. He has the potential to go to Arsenal and be their star man … Tottenham is less of a choice for him because they’ve got Harry Kane and Heung-min Son, who’ve both had great seasons, so suddenly that becomes competition for you.”

With the arrival of Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez, there’s plenty of competition at the striker position. As a result, the 25-year-old could be looking at another club to make sure he can get consistent minutes.

Furthermore, with the World Cup later this year, Jesus wants to play every week to earn his spot on the Brazilian national team, where there’s plenty of competition in the forward group, and he heads into the tournament in good form.

Proven Premier league – one of the reasons Aguerro ultimately left City for , the rotating squad system had he and Jesus playing that no. 9 position almost alternately . He just cannot be a bad buy , obviously he’s not here yet , but his CV is very serious dont you think ???

Klopp and Pep, plays a system. Barcelona. Bayern and Ajax are football institutions. You either fit in or quickly you on the out. Jack Grealish for $100M to City seem an after thought until Pep had direct needs at the end of the season. Storm lies ahead for the young man. Jesus has won, very important, and knows he will be the man at Arsenal. We need a Pep moment or two to sit Kane even when he is healthy to change the direction of the club. No top flight striker will be coming to sit and watch Kane go 90 game after game on good or bad days. Can you blame them. We are going to over pay for Richarlison to help solve that problem. Just my opinion.
