Arsenal Football Club has confirmed the signing of Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City.
Gatekeepers News reports that the forward has joined for £45m and is Mikel Arteta’s fourth purchase of the summer.
Arsenal said the 25-year-old would wear the No 9 shirt and had signed a long-term contract.
Arteta said, “I’m very excited. The club has done a tremendous job to recruit a player of this stature. I know Gabriel personally very well, and we all know him well from his time in the Premier League and being really successful here.
“This is a position that’s been on our radar for a long time now and we have managed to get a player that we all wanted, so I’m really happy.”

“I believe 100% in Mikel,” he said.
“I had a very good time with him before, he’s a very good guy and a very good coach as well. He helped me a lot.”
