Arsenal agree verbal deal for Jesus

Arsenal have reached a transfer agreement with Manchester City for Gabriel Jesus, according to CBS Sports' Ben Jacobs.

The Gunners have been in constant contact with the Cityzens for Jesus in recent weeks, and they have now finalised a deal.

Speaking on the Football Terrace podcast, Jacobs said that there is a verbal agreement in place between the Premier League clubs.

Jesus is currently on vacation in Brazil after the birth of his child, and a deal could be formally completed in 7 to 10 days' time.

The former Palmeiras graduate will earn around £220,000-a-week after the transfer. He will become the club's highest-paid player.

Meanwhile, the Gunners are also hot on the trail of his compatriot Raphinha, who is currently contracted to Leeds United.

An opening offer fell well short of the asking price, but there continues to remain a strong interest in securing his services.

Leeds want around £65m for the 25-year-old, who is also on the radar of Barcelona, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.
