Arsenal and Tottenham want Gabriel Jesus but Atletico Madrid have seemingly pulled out of the race over his salary demands.

Jesus, 25, is out of contract in 2023 and it looks likely Manchester City will be sold before leaving for free in a year.

Erling Haaland is coming this summer and Jesus is likely to have a small role to play at City despite his strong end to the season.

Jesus finished the campaign with 13 goals and 12 assists for City, showing his goalscoring and creative qualities.

There is now a lot of interest in Jesus both in England and abroad but Atletico Madrid can seemingly be ruled out.

Arsenal and Tottenham want Gabriel Jesus

The main names in the picture are Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsenal are confident in signing Jesus, according to a report by Football London in May.

Mikel Arteta and Edu both know Jesus very well and seem to think they can lure him to the red side of North London.

The problem for Arsenal is that they missed out on Champions League action and Tottenham Hotspur finished fourth.

Tuttojuve claim Tottenham have now made a formal offer to City for Jesus and offered €47m (£40m) for the Brazilian.

Whether Jesus is keen on a move to Tottenham remains to be seen, but a move to Spain now seems unlikely.

Cadena SER report that the striker’s representatives have approached Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid for a possible transfer.

However, Jesus is demanding wages above Atletico and Real are fighting for non-EU spots in their squad so no move is likely.

This is great for Arsenal and Tottenham who may now believe they are leading the race for Jesus.

This could come as Tottenham’s Champions League football against Arsenal offers a more concrete starting role in attack as the north London duo compete.
