Where Is Gabriel Jesus Headed To Next? – A Look At Potential Destinations For The City Forward

Gabriel Jesus has had a successful stint at Manchester City overall. 4 Premier League titles, 4 League Cups, and an FA Cup as well. The issue was that he’s never been able to establish himself as the club’s no9. First, it was Aguero, and then Pep shifted to a false nine system. He has been moved out to the wing, where he has performed exceptionally, but he still is not a guaranteed name on the team sheet.

Towards the end of the last season, he showed what he is all about. 4 goals and an assist in a match against Watford, and goals against PSG, Liverpool, and Chelsea, reminded everyone of how talented he is. His work rate and tenacity are next to none, and when he is on the teamsheet, everyone knows he is going to run himself into the ground. Add to that his touch and calmness in the box, make him a formidable opponent.

At 25, he finds himself in a position where his minutes are further limited by the signing of Haaland. He’s too good to be a bench option, and he knows that. Clubs all across Europe are interested in him, let’s have a look at who’s leading the race to his signature.

The Biggest Rumour: Arsenal 

The Gunners let go of Aubameyang earlier in Jan, Lacazette has left the club, and Nketiah is yet to sign a contract extension. So that leaves Arsenal with no strikers at the moment. What an addition Gabriel Jesus would be to that team. A bonafide winner who has experience performing at the biggest of stages.

He is lethal in front of goal and would link up well with the likes of Saka, Odegaard, and Martinelli. Arteta has worked with him in the past and knows how to get the best out of him. At Arsenal, he’d be the designated striker starting every game if he is fit, and at his age, that is exactly what he needs.

With City letting him go after signing Haaland, he’d surely have a point to prove. He is exactly the sort of player that can help Arsenal return to their glory days.

Wildcard option: Juventus

The Old Lady has been in a bit of turmoil over the past two seasons. Finishing 4th twice in a row is not good enough, given they won the previous 9 titles. There is going to be a rejuvenation of the Juventus attack as Dybala and Bernadeshi have departed, and it looks unlikely that Morata will be signed permanently.

Allegri deployed a 4-4-2 on many occasions last season, Jesus would be the perfect strike partner for Vlahovic. The big man-little man combination may seem old school, but if it works, why not? Jesus moving out to the wide areas, linking up with the midfield and wingers, while Vlahovic plays more as the target man who stays in the box and occupies the centre backs.

Given the dearth of available elite strikers, signing Jesus would go a long way in getting Juventus back to the top of the table.
