Gabriel Jesus the Brazilian Winger is supposedly being looked on by Real Madrid, according to a report by the Spanish publication Fichajes.
Interest in Brazilian Winger
Prior to his transfer from Manchester City to the Emirates, the 26-year-old Arsenal veteran was being pursued by the Spanish powerhouses. Furthermore, they have rekindled their interest in him in front of the summer transfer window of 2024.
Gabriel Jesus’s journey to England almost seven years ago has been a wild rollercoaster. The Brazilian international has not been very productive in the Premier League. That did not deter Arsenal from spending more than €50 million to get him prior to the 2022–2023 campaign.
Gabriel Jesus had a strong debut season with Arsenal and a successful 2022–2023 campaign overall. However, he has persisted in his ineffective ways and has not been a reliable goal scorer. This season has proven to be no different, as the 26-year-old has only managed four goals and one assist in his 11 outings thus far.
Jesus recently declared that he is not a “strong point” at scoring goals, which drew criticism from supporters and commentators. However, the former Manchester City striker is still well-liked by potential suitors despite his glaring flaws. His market worth has increased to €75 million in the interim. Furthermore, Real Madrid is showing interest in him.
Before Gabriel Jesus joined Arsenal, Real Madrid expressed interest in him, and Carlo Ancelotti was one of his admirers. However, no deal came through; instead, the Gunners grabbed him from Manchester City. Despite his lack of production in the final third, Real Madrid is still interested in the 26-year-old.
This past summer, Karim Benzema left Real Madrid for Al-Ittihad without signing a successor. Therefore, even if the striker is not clinical and prolific, they still need to invest on him. Furthermore, because Kylian Mbappe is apparently no longer on their radar, the Merengues must find other options.
Thus, Gabriel Jesus has become Real Madrid’s aim. It will be difficult to sign the 26-year-old Arsenal veteran, though, given his significance to Mikel Arteta’s intentions. Therefore, it will be fascinating to watch if a transfer happens the following year.
