The transfer market buzz is heating up as the Saudi Pro League sets its sights on Arsenal Brazilian star Gabriel Jesus for a summer swoop.

Jesus has been a surprise name linked with an exit from the Emirates Stadium this summer and there is chatter about a newly promoted Saudi Arabian side Al-Qadisiyah reportedly being the club pushing for his signature.

Al-Qadisiyah, backed by oil giants Aramco have expressed interest in Jesus, although the Brazilian forward’s stance on joining the Pro League remains uncertain.

According to TBR Football, Arsenal have signalled to the player that they would not impede his departure if a suitable offer materialises. However, they maintain that they are not actively seeking to offload him.

Gabriel Jesus’s tenure at Arsenal has been marked by a mix of success and scrutiny. While his arrival for £45 million was a significant statement for Mikel Arteta’s side, his contribution on the field has faced scrutiny, particularly with his modest tally of four league goals this season.


Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta earlier in the week refuted claims that the club are preparing to offload Jesus. “I don’t know where reports about Gabriel Jesus’ exit are coming from,” Arteta said. “We have No intention of letting Gabriel leave.”

In addition to Jesus, the Saudi side have also indicated interest in signing Tottenham forward Richarlison, who has emerged as a prime target for the Pro League. Sources indicate that Al-Qadisiyah have earmarked the forward as a potential acquisition.

Intermediaries have conveyed Richarlison’s interest in a Middle East move to the Pro League, with indications that Tottenham are open to the prospect of parting ways with the former Everton player.

With both clubs reportedly open to considering offers, speculation mounts that a move to Saudi Arabia could materialise if lucrative propositions emerge in the upcoming transfer window.
