Marca have revealed that Manchester City have agreed to sell Tottenham target Gabriel Jesus for around €50m (£42.6m) this summer.
Antonio Conte is keen on adding a versatile striker to his squad and Jesus is reportedly one of the options on the North London club’s radar (The Telegraph).
Arsenal have also been credited with an interest in the Man City star, with the striker’s agent admitting to holding talks with the Gunners (Guardian).
Marca have now revealed that the Brazilian is likely to leave the Etihad this summer, with the striker’s entourage making their intention to depart the club clear to City back in April.
It is alleged that the City hierarchy have agreed to facilitate Jesus’ sale this summer for a fee of around €45m-€50m (£38.4m -£42.6m).
Arsenal are said to have sounded out the striker without making an official offer while Tottenham are also said to be keen on him.
In addition to the two North London clubs, Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea have also been credited with an interest in Jesus while Real Madrid are also attentive to the striker’s situation.
The report also adds that the 25-year-old wishes to play through the middle at his next club after having to play on the flanks for Pep Guardiola’s side over recent years.

If Jesus wants to play through the middle, there is no chance that he would want to join Spurs. He is more likely to move to a club like Arsenal, where he would be the main-man upfront. The relationship that the Brazilian has with Arteta from their time together at City could also work in the Gunners’ favour.
