While interest from other clubs, from the Premier League and elsewhere, was always present, it could be that the arrival of Norwegian striker Erling Haaland speeds up the former Palmeiras' player departure from the Etihad Stadium. Today journalist Fabrizio Romano reported that Marcelo Pettinati is supposedly dicussing the possibility of a move to Arsenal.

"We had talks with Arsenal about Gabriel Jesus, we like the project - it's a possibility we're discussing",  Pettinati  told the journalist. "There are 6 more clubs interested in Gabriel - he's focused on final games with Man City, we'll see".

The Brazilian striker joined Manchester City from Sao Paulo club Palmeiras in 2016, and has scored 95 goals in 234 matches for the English side.

With the Gunners seemingly on the right path to a return to the UEFA Champions League, it could be smart move for Gabriel Jesus, who would undoubtedly sit behind Haaland in the pecking order at City next season.
