Tottenham ready to rival Arsenal for striker signing

Tottenham ready to rival Arsenal for striker signing

Tottenham are ready to launch a late bid for Arsenal target Gabriel Jesus this summer after securing Champions League football, according to reports.

The Gunners were thought to be keen on a deal for the Manchester City man, but it is unclear how missing out on a Champions League spot will affect any potential deal, with the Cityzens previously demanding £55m for the 25-year-old, whose contract is up in 12 months.

And, asked about his future, Jesus revealed that nothing had yet been decided.

“About my future, it’s still uncertain,” Jesus told ESPN Brazil. “I have a contract with City and I have already expressed my desire to the City people and to my agent.

“I have in my head very clear what I want. Today, I want to celebrate a lot with City.

“It’s obvious that I’m very happy here. Tomorrow, if everything goes well for me, my wife and our family, Helena [his daughter] will come to the world.

“So, I have to take advantage of this moment. Then, think about the team, smile at the team again.

“And, on vacation, I decide about my future.”

Tottenham line up Jesus move

Now, as per the Telegraph, Antonio Conte and co. are plotting a move for the Brazilian, undermining Arsenal’s move in the process, as they look for cover for their front line.

‘Tottenham are poised to compete with Arsenal for Gabriel Jesus after beating their rivals to a place in next season’s Champions League’, they report.

Whether Jesus would be happy to move from second fiddle at Manchester City to second fiddle at Tottenham is another matter, but the draw of Champions League could prove pivotal.
