Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus has reportedly emerged on the radar of Spanish champions Real Madrid again.
According to a report from Fichajes, Gabriel Jesus, who joined Arsenal in the summer, has caught the attention of Real Madrid. And it remains to be seen whether the Spanish champions are prepared to make a move for the 25-year-old striker in the summer.
Gabriel Jesus has been an instant hit since moving to the North London club from Manchester City. He has scored five goals in the Premier League so far. Apart from his goalscoring ability, Arsenal have benefited from his overall footballing intellect, and he has transformed the Gunners in the final third.
His ability to operate anywhere across the front three and the intelligence to link up with the other attackers in the side has given Arsenal a cutting edge in the final third this season. The Gunners are currently at the top of the Premier League table, and Mikel Arteta will be hoping to win the league title this season.
Arsenal must look to hold on to Gabriel Jesus for as long as possible, and a move to Real Madrid seems unlikely at this stage. The Spanish champions will have to pay an absurd amount of money to convince Arsenal to sell the Brazilian attacker anytime soon.
Furthermore, with Karim Benzema at their disposal, Real Madrid will struggle to offer him regular game time as well. While Jesus can operate in the wide areas, he would have to compete with Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo Goes. Both youngsters have been exceptional for Real Madrid, and it would be quite surprising if Carlo Ancelotti decided to give Jesus a start ahead of them.
In all honesty, staying at Arsenal is the best option for Jesus right now as the north London club would be able to guarantee him regular first-team football. The main reason behind his move to Arsenal was the lack of first-team action at Manchester City.
So it would be surprising if he decided to join Real Madrid without the promise of regular first-team action. Furthermore, the Brazilian attacker is entering his peak years, and Arsenal will not want to let him go anytime soon.
