Strengthening Arsenal’s offense is a priority for Mikel Arteta and Arsenal technical director Edu this summer after the north London club narrowly failed to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
Despite a significant improvement at Emirates Stadium, Arsenal’s bid to secure a place in the top four ahead of Spurs was ultimately undermined by a lack of goals.
In all, Arsenal have scored just 61 goals in 38 games, falling in the closing stages of a season that ended on a disappointing note as Spurs finished fourth.
Arteta approved the decision to let Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang go in January and was unable to find a replacement.
Eddie Nketiah impressed in the final weeks of the season and although the England Under-21 international is now expected to stay and sign a new contract, Arsenal are absent following Alexandre Lacazette’s decision to leave on a free transfer as his contract expired this week.
Even without the prospect of elite European football, Jesus is willing to commit the best years of his career to Arteta’s Arsenal rebuilding project.
The pair worked together at City, where Arteta was Pep Guardiola’s assistant, and the promise of regular first-team football and a salary of around £200,000 a week was said to seal the deal The sun.
Jesus is currently on international ministry with Brazil, but an agreement could be reached as early as next week.
After Brazil’s 5-1 win over South Korea, Jesus hinted that a decision could be imminent.
He said: “I want to see what’s best for me and most importantly for my career. From Tuesday we will see what is best.”
