Arsenal are preparing an “opening bid” for Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

The Brazilian international has been heavily linked with a switch to the Emirates in recent weeks but Romano claims that the Citizens won’t be letting him leave on the cheap, with a valuation set at around the €50m (£42.5m) to €60m (£51m) mark:

Arsenal are preparing the opening bid for Gabriel Jesus. Manchester City want around €50-60m to sell Gabriel this summer, even if his current deal won’t be extended. ⚪️? #AFC

It does seem as if City have now made a decision to sell Jesus. You don’t usually slap a price tag on a player if you are not willing to sell them and it must be said that the striker’s contract situation means they don’t really have much of a choice.

There has been no indication that an extension will be agreed with the Brazilian, and it’s clear that the club are unwilling to let him leave on a free transfer when his current deal expires next year. With Arsenal seemingly very interested, a move looks to be on the cards.
