Gabriel Jesus plotting EPL switch?

English Premier League

Manchester City star Gabriel Jesus' agent has revealed that his client has held talks with a Premier League rival regarding a potential move in the upcoming window.

Pep Guardiola's side confirmed on Tuesday that they have reached an agreement in principle to sign Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.

This transfer is expected to put a dent in Jesus' game time for the Citizens in the 2022/23 campaign, with the Brazil star, who has hit a rich vein of form of late with six goals in his past five Premier League matches, having previously played second fiddle to Sergio Aguero.

After the Argentine left the club for Barcelona last year, it was thought the Selecao attacker would get his chance up front, but he has largely been used on the wing rather than as an out-and-out striker when he has played this season. 

With the former Palmeiras starlet having refused to commit his future to the Manchester club last month, Haaland's arrival is understood to have increased the prospect of the 25-year-old leaving the Etihad in the next window.

Jesus' agent Marcelo Pettinati has now confirmed he has already held talks with Arsenal regarding the striker, but also made it clear the Gunners are not the only team interested in his client.

"We had talks with Arsenal about Gabriel Jesus," the agent said, per The Guardian.

"We like the project – it's a possibility we're discussing.

"There are six more clubs interested in Gabriel.

"He's focused on the final games with Man City; we'll see."

With Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah's Gunners contracts expiring at the end of this season, the team managed by Mikel Arteta – who worked with Jesus when he was an assistant coach at City – will be in the market for a new striker and could offer the Brazilian guaranteed game time.
