Manchester City have been widely named as favorites to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland this summer, which in turn has given rise to speculation about the future of Gabriel Jesus amid rumors that Arsenal are interested in his services. Speaking to the press after his team’s 5-1 win over Watford on Saturday, the Brazilian striker played down the situation, saying it was not time to consider a case as City are still competing for the Premier League title and Champions League. -the honor.
The 25-year-old has so far started 17 league games during this period, but he can not exactly be described as a regular member of the starting 11 under Pep Guardiola, even after Sergio Aguero’s departure last summer. He has only scored seven goals in the league, four of which came against Watford.
His playing time will certainly be much less if Haaland makes the Etihad switch in the coming months, and Arsenal, who desperately need to sign a striker this summer, could no doubt do so with Jesus coming to the Emirates.
“It’s not time to think about this. You expect me to say this, but it’s true.” said Jesus.
“Now is the best moment of the season. I will enjoy keeping focus on my team, along with my teammates, fighting for the Premier League.”
