On Wednesday, Brazilian outlet UOL featured a story saying the talks between Arsenal and Manchester City for the transfer of Gabriel Jesus are advancing, with the clubs getting closer to an agreement regarding the fee.

This information is now confirmed by Goal, with the outlet writing that the Gunners placed a formal bid for the striker, worth €50m.

The report claims the negotiations between Arsenal and Manchester City are ‘close to an outcome’, which should happen ‘at the end of the English season’.

According to Goal, the player’s staff want him to be focused on the final games he has for Manchester City this month, so he can help them conquer the Premier League title.

The story also claims that the negotiations are held by Edu Gaspar, who worked with Jesus at the national team, but it was actually Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta who asked for the signing.

Goal is also back on saying that besides the Gunners, there are actually five other clubs who made offers to his staff.

Still, it seems it’s Arsenal who are the close to a deal with Manchester City at this moment in time.
