Tottenham Hotspur want Gabriel Jesus but their strained relationship with Manchester City could make a move a bit difficult this summer.
Tottenham are back in the Champions League after securing fourth place with a 5-0 win at Norwich on Sunday.
It’s a big boost for the club’s finances and for its overall appeal in the transfer market this summer.
Antonio Conte will want a string of signings this summer to bolster his squad and a striker will be crucial.
Harry Kane needs more support up front and the addition of another goalscorer would be ideal.
Gabriel Jesus has been suggested as a possible signing as he may be preparing to leave Manchester City this summer.
Tottenham Hotspur want Gabriel Jesus
The Telegraph broke the news of Tottenham’s interest on Mondaywho claims Spurs plan to challenge Arsenal for Jesus.
Erling Haaland will join Manchester City this summer and Jesus is likely to be sold with just one year left on his contract.
Arsenal are the most likely destination for Jesus in his native Brazil, according to Globo Esporte.
But Tottenham are now trying to enter the race in hopes of luring Jesus to the other side of north London.
You can understand the appeal; Jesus is excellent at pressing, can play up front or on the outside and has a lot of experience in the Premier League.
Hailed as ‘fantastic’ by Pep Guardiola, Jesus remains high at City but perhaps it’s time to go.
The problem for Tottenham could be that their relationship with City might not be all that great.
The Daily Mail claim that while Tottenham want Jesus, their relationship with City could be a real obstacle.
City pushed to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham last summer but Daniel Levy flatly refused to sell the striker.
A year on, Tottenham now want a Manchester City forward and could face similar opposition.
Tottenham will hope City are open to a deal and the situations are very different.
Kane is Tottenham’s talismanic striker while Jesus is in and out of the team and free to leave in 2023.
Levy will feel his decision to keep Kane has absolutely paid off with Champions League football and that attitude will not change even if City refuse to sell Jesus to Tottenham.
