Romano rules out summer switch to Spain – confirms Gabriel Jesus will definitely join premier league club

Gabriel Jesus “will leave” Manchester City this summer “for sure”, with Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham keen, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Jesus’ future was thrown in doubt following the £51m signing of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.

City have also signed young Argentine forward Julian Alvarez, meaning the Brazilian could fall down to Pep Guardiola’s third choice when it comes to his No. 9.

There is a lot of interest in the 25-year-old, with Arsenal emerging as front runners, however, Chelsea and Tottenham are also believed to be interested.

He is out of contract next year so the Premier League champions are eager to receive a transfer fee this summer, with a £40m price tag reportedly being put on Jesus’ head.

Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have also been put in the mix, however, renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano has shut down those links, reporting that Jesus will not leave the Premier League.

“Gabriel Jesus’ gonna join a Premier League club this summer – and not Real Madrid, as explained two days ago. More to follow soon,” Romano wrote on Twitter.

“Gabriel will leave Man City for sure, no changes expected.”

Arsenal are on the hunt for a new striker given their lack of options up front. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette have both departed this year, leaving Eddie Nketiah – who has technically been released by the club – as Mikel Arteta’s only out-and-out first-team striker.

Chelsea, on the other hand, are looking to improve their frontline given Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku’s struggles. Both players have also been linked with a move away this summer.

As for Spurs, Harry Kane has been leading the line with no competition for his place for a number of years, and head coach Antonio Conte could look to Jesus to help his side compete in the Premier League and Champions League.

Unfortunately for the Gunners, they can not offer the City forward Champions League football, unlike their London rivals.
