Jesus is on course to complete his move to Arsenal, according to Goal, and a deal might be made in the coming days.
Arsenal have been hunting Jesus for a long time, and the prospect of a contract this week is very encouraging.
Arsenal have received a bid of over 30 million rejected, with City demanding 50 million for the striker.
According to a survey, Arsenal might utilize performance-based add-ons to intimidate City into selling Jesus this week.
Jesus, 25, had a great season to finish the season with 13 goals and 12 assists in all competitions for the city.
The problem is that Jesus is out of contract in 2023, and City may feel that they need to sell now before he leaves for nothing.
Arsenal is hoping to make use of this to their advantage, and a deal is now apparing to be gaining momentum.
While Mikel Arteta coached the striker during his time on Pep Guardiolas'' coaching staff, Edu knows Jesus from the Brazilian national team setup.
Joining this Arsenal setup will surely appeal to Jesus, and they semblent to be closing in on their adversary.
Eddie Nketiah has signed a new contract, but Jesus would almost certainly enter the role of the Premier League striker.
Jesus will be excited to take the chance of regular first-team games with Arsenal after too long in and out of the City side, praised as outstanding by Guardiola.
