'Would help a lot': Arsenal star speaks out on club's Gabriel Jesus pursuit


Arsenal defender Gabriel Magalhaes has, on Sunday, provided his take on the prospect of fellow countryman Gabriel Jesus making the move to north London in the summer.

Speculation surrounding a potential Gunners swoop for hitman Jesus has of course been rampant in the media for several weeks now.

This comes with Mikel Arteta and co. understood to have identified the versatile Manchester City star as a prime target to reinforce the club's frontline ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

Both Alexandre Lacazette and, potentially, Nicolas Pepe are in line for summer departures from the Emirates, making additions both on the right and through the middle an absolute necessity.

Jesus, capable of lining out in both positions, and with just a year left on his Man City contract, would, in turn, make plenty of sense as a high-profile addition to Arsenal's ranks.

And one current member of Mikel Arteta's squad who appears to share such a viewpoint, as alluded to above, comes in the form of Gabriel Magalhaes.

Speaking to the media whilst on international duty with Brazil, stopper Gabriel was drawn on the mounting links between Arsenal and namesake Jesus.

And the Gunners standout, whilst assuring that there is 'nothing certain' when it comes to a transfer as of yet, went on to reveal his opinion that the striker 'would help a lot' at the Emirates.

“We joke about it in the dressing room, but there’s nothing certain. I’m sure that he is a great player and, if he comes to Arsenal, it would help out a lot.”
