Interesting updates on the future of Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus are now shared by Brazilian journalist André Hernan.
On his Youtube channel, he claims that Arsenal are still the club who are ‘one step ahead’ in the competition to sign the 25-year-old.
Despite the interest from other sides such as Chelsea and Real Madrid, it’s still the Gunners who lead the race, according to an ‘important person’ in the scenario.
The main reason why Real Madrid can’t sign Gabriel Jesus is said to be the lack of a non-EU player place, which had already been reported in Spain last week.
There’s a delay in Vinícius Junior’s process of getting Spanish citizenship, and that leaves a ‘nearly zero’ chance of signing the Manchester City player.
Hernan even points out that Chelsea are one of the English clubs who’d like to sign Jesus, whose departure from City is taken as certain. Without giving many details about the Blues’ interest, he makes it clear it’s Arsenal who stand as favourites.
The journalist points out that people around the process have been very cautious when speaking about what will happen, and that’s probably why there haven’t been many details on Arsenal’s chase over the past week or so.
