Arsenal have completed a £45 million deal to sign Brazil international Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City.
The 25-year-old striker arrives at Emirates Stadium after a very fruitful four and a half year spell under Pep Guardiola.
Signed from Palmeiras for £27 million (plus add-ons) in January 2017, Jesus scored 95 goals and made 46 assists in 236 appearances for City. Along the way, he won four Premier League titles, three EFL Cups, an FA Cup and two Community Shields.
While he never quite lived up to his billing as Sergio Aguero’s heir, Jesus proved a reliable, hard-working and popular squad player at the Etihad.
Out of contract next year, he moves to Arsenal in the hope of getting more game time ahead of the World Cup, something that couldn’t be guaranteed at City after the Blues signed two new strikers in Erling Haaland and Julián Álvarez.
To date, Jesus has been capped 56 times by his country scoring 19 goals.
Jesus, who will wear the recently vacated number 9 shirt, is Arsenal’s fourth signing of the summer after the arrival of Marquinhos, Fabio Vieira and Matt Turner.
