Pep Guardiola is willing to sell Tottenham and Arsenal target Gabriel Jesus this summer, with the Manchester City star’s future in doubt. The Spaniard would rather keep Jesus but will not stand in his way, according to ESPN.
Jesus, 25, has been incredible for City over the past five years. Clocking up 235 appearances, he has scored 97 goals and laid on 46 assists – despite 85 of his games being from the bench. He is set to enter the last year of his deal.
Reports claim both Arsenal and Tottenham are considering moves to sign Jesus. ESPN state that Manchester City have slapped a £55million price tag on the Brazil international’s shoulders – despite his current contract status.
The report also states that while Guardiola would love him to remain – despite the signing of Erling Haaland – he will not stand in his way to keep him. It is a boost, as Tottenham and Arsenal intensify their summer pursuit.

Jesus would be a wonderful signing, for either club. But Arsenal need him more. Tottenham will keep Harry Kane after City bought Haaland. Jesus would be a stunning addition as back-up, but would he join them?
Haaland pushes him further down the pecking order at City. He needs to join a club where he is first choice. Arsenal, meanwhile, would make him their no.1 – but Champions League football looks out of their reach.
So, back-up to Kane at Tottenham – or no.1 at Arsenal without Champions League football? Jesus has some thinking to do. There is a chance Antonio Conte uses a 3-5-2 system that worked so well at Inter Milan.
