Good morning Arsenal fans
Arsenal have placed Gabriel Jesus their No.1 transfer target, according to Fabrizio Romano.
He said to Caught Offside: “Gabriel Jesus is still the main target of Arsenal as of today.
“In the next few hours there will be new contacts to understand if they can reach an agreement or move to other targets.
“There is not only Arsenal on Gabriel, who will leave Man City at 100%. He’s a top player who wants to start matches, and it’s not too surprising to see him take his time over a decision on his future from him.
Elsewhere, Eddie Nketiah has reportedly penned a new deal with Arsenal.
His new contract will see him stay at Arsenal for more than a decade after he joined the club in 2015, according to the Evening Standard.
Meanwhile, Arsenal have reportedly triggered Porto ace Fabio Vieira’s release clause.
The Gunners have launched a £36m bid free Vieira from his contract entanglement, according to the Express.
It is thought that the 22-year-old is traveling to North London to undergo a medical before completing his switch to the capital, the report adds.
Arsenal will pay Porto £29.8m for Fabio Vieira, plus £4.2m, reports revealed.
The 22-year-old will sign a five-year deal with the Gunners, according to David Ornstein.
His switch to North London was facilitated by super agent Jorge Mendes.
Mendes also played a pivotal role in Nicolas Pepe’s transfer to Arsenal last summer.
Finally, Arsenal are reportedly closing in on the signing of Bologna full-back Aaron Hickey.
The Emirates will likely be the next best destination for the 20-year-old, according to the Scotsman.
However, the Gunners will have to cough up £18m minimum for Hickey, the report adds.
