With Gabriel Jesus most likely to seek a new club following the signing of Erling Haaland to the blue side of Manchester, Juventus are set to compete with Arsenal for the Manchester City outcast.
So far this season, the Brazilian marksman has failed to establish himself within the Guardiola’s starting eleven as he only made 26 starts for Manchester City across all competitions.
Despite his lack of playing time, the 24 year-old demonstrated his remarkable ability within the final third to finish and create as he managed to score 13 goals and provide eleven assists across all competitions for Guardiola’s side.
Although the promising striker’s contract is set to expire in the summer of 2023, it seems like Jesus is leaning towards the exit door in order to seek more playing time at a new destination, ending his five-year stay at the Etihad Stadium.
According to reports from Tutto Juve, the Bianconeri are prepared to submit an opening bid just below Arsenal’s lucrative €50M offer. The club directors strongly believe that the Brazilian international can play a fundamental role alongside Dusan Vlahovic with his incredible pace, his sublime technique on the ball, and his clinical goal-scoring ability.
However, the Old Lady are not the only Serie A club ready to pounce on Jesus as Milan are also very keen on luring him to the San Siro. The Rossonerri have identified Jesus as the potential heir for the veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
