Arsenal’s hopes of signing Gabriel Jesus were dashed after Manchester City offered the striker to Chelsea.

The Brazilian is Mikel Arteta’s number one target this summer and the Gunners have already done important groundwork for the City striker’s arrival.

Arteta has a pre-existing relationship with Jesus having worked with him during his time at Etihad and Jesus is open to moving to the Emirates despite the Gunners failing to finish in the top four.

A fee seemed to be the biggest stumbling block as Arsenal priced Jesus at around £10m less than City’s £50m asking price.

But the Telegraph claims City are trying to boost interest in Jesus and have instead offered Brazil international Chelsea.

Thomas Tuchel is determined to sign a new, mobile striker this summer, with the club expected to sack Romelu Lukaku less than 12 months after his move to Stamford Bridge.

Jesus would certainly fit, but it remains to be seen whether he would prefer to move to Stamford Bridge rather than the Emirates.

Chelsea could likely beat Arsenal when it comes to a transfer fee while offering Jesus Champions League football.

Jesus has 12 months left on his contract at Etihad and has reluctantly decided to leave the club following the arrival of Erling Haaland from Dortmund.
