Real Madrid are looking at potential strikers to replace 35-year-old Karim Benzema with Arsenal player on their list of targets ahead of the summer transfer window.
According to reports in Spain, Real Madrid are weighing up a move to sign Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus.
The Brazilian star joined the Gunners for £43million from Manchester City last summer. Since he moved to North London, Jesus has scored five times and recorded six assists in 16 premier league appearances so far.
Before suffering a knee injury at the World Cup, Gabriel Jesus was one of Arsenal’s most impressive players at the beginning of the season and was a big reason the Gunners found themselves top of the league going into the World Cup break.
Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez has made a list of four targets the Spanish giants are currently looking at to replace Karim Benzema come the summer transfer window with the 35-year-old not getting any younger.
After playing at Manchester city for five years where he wasn’t a regular starter, Jesus decided to leave City and join the Gunners in order to become the main man. The Brazilian scored 95 goals for Manchester City in 236 matches, so no wonder some of the biggest clubs around the world are taking a look at Arsenal’s number nine.
Being top of the Premier League at this stage of the season will always attract interest, which Arsenal are now finding out.
However, Jesus only joined the club last summer so a move to Real Madrid at the end of the season is extremely unlikely, if not impossible.
