Gabriel Jesus Arrives At Arsenal For Medical As Contracts Already Completed

Gabriel Jesus is set to complete his move to Arsenal in the coming days, with the centre forward arriving in London for his medical.

The 25-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to north London in recent months and it now appears the move is close to completion.

According to the ever reliable Fabrizio Romano, Jesus has arrived in London to undergo his medical on Tuesday morning, and will sign a five-year deal which will see him become Arsenal's highest earning player until 2027.

It's believed Manchester City will receive a £45 million fee for the player who was in the last year of his contract.

The arrival of Erling Haaland was seemingly the final nail in the coffin for Jesus, who in a World Cup year is looking to be a main starting striker for both club and country Brazil.

With the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leaving Arsenal earlier this year, Arsenal were in desperate need of a centre forward signing to take them to the next level.

The Gunners missed out on UEFA Champions League football for the 2022/23 season, finishing two points behind rivals Tottenham Hotspur and both Mikel Arteta and Edu believe Jesus is the man to help the club regain the spot.

Arsenal will be unlikely to sign another striker this summer, with Eddie Nketiah, who impressed toward the end of last season, also signing a new contract worth around £100,000-per-week.

Jesus will become Arsenal's third confirmed signing of the summer, after midfielder Fabio Vieira joined from FC Porto in a £35 million deal, as well as American goalkeeper and Arsenal fan Matt Turner.

It's believed that Arteta and Edu won't stop there, with Leeds United's Raphinha heavily linked with a £60 million transfer, and Ajax's defensive star Lisandro Martinez also reportedly inbound to Emirates Stadium.

This summer's spending could top 2021's £142 million spree, which would show a huge backing and belief in Arteta in his first managerial role.
