Arsenal at risk of losing ground in chase for Premier League No.9

The Serie A outfit AC Milan are likely to make fresh contact with the agents of Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus, who is targeted by Arsenal.

With Erling Haaland joining the Citizens, the Brazilian is expected to move on from the Etihad Stadium in the summer transfer market.

The Gunners have a real interest in the attacker and the South American is convinced about the project in north London under Mikel Arteta.

But the capital giants are facing stern competition for his signature as there are multiple other big clubs who are vying for his services, including Newcastle United.

I Rossoneri have also made an enquiry for the former Palmeiras talent and according to the Italian website, the Italians will make fresh contact with the player’s camp this week.

The club are seriously keen on him and are pushing to convince the outgoing Manchester City star to consider a move to the Serie A.

Favourable tax laws in the country also give Stefano Pioli and co. a chance to compete with the wages on offer in England.

Gabriel has several variants ahead of the striker if he eventually decides to quit the Premier League giants this summer.

Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are also understood to be targeting the frontman.
