Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has backed Gabriel Jesus to sign for Arsenal this summer.
Gabriel continues to be linked with a move to Arsenal this summer with Mikel Arteta keen to reinforce the club’s attack ahead of the new season. Arsenal released Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during the January transfer window and Alexandre Lacazette’s future is unclear as his contract is near its expiration date at the end of this season.
“You speak to players about him, they appreciate him because he puts a good workload in, he has got quality,” he said on his Vibe with Five Podcast, pundit Ferdinand
“I think if he plays consistently in a team like Arsenal, I think he gets you goals.”
The Brazilian has scored 57 goals while providing 32 assists for City in 155 appearances.
Gabriel Jesus & Tammy Abraham are among the shortlisted profiles who could arrive at Arsenal this summer. However, Football London has learned that Roma have slapped an €80m asking price on Abraham, which is likely to scare away many of his potential suitors. [@ChrisWheatley_] pic.twitter.com/MVArEoo0LK
