Gabriel Jesus' Arsenal Shirt Number Revealed As New Signing Seen At Emirates Stadium In Leaked Footage

Gabriel Jesus' Arsenal Shirt Number Revealed As New Signing Seen At Emirates Stadium In Leaked Footage

Gabriel Jesus has been spotted doing his media duties.

Gabriel Jesus has been seen undertaking his media duties at the Emirates Stadium, with his transfer to Arsenal set to be announced imminently.

The Brazilian centre forward was filmed walking around in a full Arsenal kit, wearing the number nine which was vacated by Alexandre Lacazette, as can be seen below.

It is not expected that Jesus' move will be announced by Arsenal today, with the 25-year-old currently doing all of his media duties which would include interviews, photographs, signing merchandise and getting to know everyone within the club.

Jesus has joined Arsenal in a deal, yet to be announced, worth up to £45 million from Manchester City and is set to wear the number nine shirt for the club.

Arsenal have already completed the signings of winger Marquinhos, goalkeeper Matt Turner and attacking midfielder Fabio Vieira, but it is Jesus, who was Mikel Arteta's number one transfer target, that will get fans most excited.

The Gunners lacked a goalscoring centre forward last season, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leaving the club in January for Barcelona and Lacazette failing to lead the line successfully.

Arsenal have also tied down Eddie Nketiah to a long term deal, although it is widely recognised he will play back up to Jesus, who will hope to get Arsenal back into the UEFA Champions League places.

Arteta and technical director Edu will now be able to focus their attentions elsewhere, with a strong interest in Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez as well as Leeds United winger Raphinha, although the Brazilian is likely to head to Chelsea after the two clubs agreed a deal worth £60 million.

Jesus' move to Arsenal has not yet been announced but is expected to be on Friday, where all his media duties will be available to read and watch.

It's believed that Arteta and Edu were crucial in convincing Jesus to join Arsenal.

The 25-year-old was wary about joining the club after they failed to reach the Champions League places last season.
