Even though Arsenal have been strongly named as the main contenders for the signing of Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus, it seems the Gunners are not alone in this race.

An interesting update on this chase is today brought by Goal Brasil, who had a word with the player’s representative, Marcelo Perttinati.

The first claims sound good for Arsenal, with the agent making it clear the project offered by the London club was interesting.

However, he also explained that there are six other clubs who will fight the Gunners in the race for Gabriel Jesus.

Therefore, even though the 25-year-old is said to be ‘excited’ with that pursuit from Mikel Arteta’s side, he should have other options on the table.

Even though Goal doesn’t name the clubs who are battling Arsenal for the signing, one of them may have been revealed by El Chiringuito today.

According to their journalist Julio Suarez, Atletico Madrid are interested in the player, with their chase confirmed by the striker’s entourage.

It’s also said he likes the La Liga side’s project.

And when speaking of other competitors, they mention Juventus and ‘especially Arsenal’, making it clear the Gunners are still going strong for the signing.
