Jesus joins Gunners

Arsenal have signed Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City for £45m on a long-term deal.

“The club has done a tremendous job to recruit a player of this stature,” said manager Mikel Arteta.

“I know Gabriel personally very well, and we all know him well from his time in the Premier League and being really successful here.

“This is a position that’s been on our radar for a long time now and we have managed to get a player that we all wanted, so I’m really happy.”

The 25-year-old Brazilian forward becomes Arsenal’s fourth signing of the summer, following the arrivals of Fabio Vieira, Matt Turner and Marquinhos.

“It’s been a pleasure to play for Manchester City,” Jesus said.

“I feel like I am a better player now than when I arrived and to win 11 trophies has been amazing. My four Premier League titles are particularly special for me.

“I want to thank everyone at City – the manager, my teammates and the fans – for all the support they have given me over the past five-and-a-half years.”
