Tottenham are said to be keen on hijacking Arsenal’s move for Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus.
The 25-year-old is Mikel Arteta’s number one attacking target for this summer window as they seek to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette whom they lost in the past six months.
Eddie Nketiah re-signed with the club this weekend, but Arteta is still determined to sign Jesus according to The Mirror, Spurs are hoping to shatter their bitter rivals with a late swoop for the Brazil international.

Spurs boss Antonio Conte is enamored with Jesus’ versatility across the front-line and wants to add him to his talented attacking group with the player having been linked with a move to Chelsea FC too.
City is demanding at least £50m for the player who is keen on more game time ahead of the summer 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
