Gabriel Jesus set for Arsenal medical after finalising personal terms

Gabriel Jesus has agreed personal terms with Arsenal and will undergo his medical before completing his move from Manchester City, 90min understands.

Arsenal have been in talks to sign Jesus for much of the last month, but the deal accelerated in the last week after they finally agreed a fee with City, who have accepted a deal worth £45m.

Jesus has rejected the offer of a long-term contract at the Etihad Stadium as he is believed to see his future as a centre forward – something that is on offer at Arsenal.

90min understands that Arsenal were the only interested party committed to playing Jesus through the middle and it is believed that is crucial to the move. His relationship with Gunners boss Mikel Arteta, having spent many years together at City where he served as assistant to Pep Guardiola, was also a contributing factor.

Arteta has explained his vision and plans to Jesus, who was sufficiently impressed to commit to Arsenal.
