The transfer oi Gabriel Jesus is almost complete.
The Gunners had a fee rejected last week, but they have made an improved offer which is reported to have been accepted.
The initial fee will be £40 million, but bonuses and other add-ons will take the whole package close to City’s valuation of the player.
Meanwhile personal terms have already been agreed and Jesus I set to sign a five year deal with the North London club worth £4.3 million of the year.
Although a number of other clubs have been interested in Jesus, apart from being reunited with former coach Mikel Arteta, what attracts the striker to Arsenal is the fact that he will lead the forward line. Something that will give him greater prominence in a World Cup year.
