Rumoured Tottenham target Gabriel Jesus has admitted that he has already communicated to Manchester City what he wants to do this summer over his future.

Jesus’ agent Marcelo Pettinati confirmed earlier this month that he has had talks with Arsenal but added that as many as six other clubs have shown interest in his client (Guardian).

According to The Telegraph, Spurs are expected to rival Arsenal for the Brazilian’s signature this summer after beating their North London rivals to the Champions League qualification.

The report stated that Antonio Conte wants to strengthen his squad to cope with the demands of Champions League football, and Jesus, who can play out wide or as a number nine, is a player that the Italian has identified as a target.

This has also been backed up by Alasdair Gold, who claimed that the City star is one of six strikers on the club’s radar on ahead of the summer transfer window.

Jesus chose to keep his cards close to his chest when asked about his future but admitted that he has already expressed his desire to the City hierarchy.

The 25-year-old told ESPN Brazil: “About my future, it’s still uncertain. 

“I have a contract with City and I have already expressed my desire to the City people and to my agent. I have in my head very clear what I want. Today, I want to celebrate a lot with City.

“It’s obvious that I’m very happy here. Tomorrow, if everything goes well for me, my wife and our family, Helena [his daughter] will come to the world.

“So, I have to take advantage of this moment. Then, think about the team, smile at the team again. And, on vacation, I decide about my future.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Jesus would be the perfect addition for us, given his versatility and the fact that he would not need a settling-in period. However, I believe Arsenal would have an edge over Spurs in the race for the Brazilian as the Gunners would be able to promise him regular first-team football, which will be difficult for Conte to do, given the current front three he has at his disposal.
