Arsenal have completed the signing of Brazil international Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City on a five-year deal worth £45 Million.

Jesus, 25, joins Arsenal having established himself as one of the leading strikers in the Premier League in recent seasons. He’s scored 95 goals in 236 appearances in all competitions during his five seasons at Manchester City.

Gabriel will wear the number 9 shirt and will join up with the Gunners squad for pre-season training soon.

“I am so happy to be here to help. I come to help, to learn as well, and to try to do my best,” Jesus said.

Jesus has won the Premier League title four times, the FA Cup, and the League Cup three times. He is a regular in the Brazil national team, making 56 appearances and scoring 19 times since making his full international debut for his country in September 2016.

He was a member of the squad which won the Copa America in 2019. During his international career Gabriel has also notably won a Gold medal at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, and featured at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

“I’m very excited. The club has done a tremendous job to recruit a player of this stature,” Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta said. “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.”

Now, Arsenal have officially unveiled Jesus as their fourth signing of the summer – following deals for American goalkeeper Matt Turner, young Brazilian winger Marquinhos and talented Portuguese playmaker Fabio Vieira from FC Porto.

The arrival of Jesus and the extension of Eddie Nketiah’s contract means the Gunners have options in the centre-forward role, with the north Londoners also welcoming Folarin Balogun back after his loan at Championship club Middlesbrough.
