Arsenal target Gabriel Jesus continued his fine form this evening as he notched Manchester City’s third goal in the club’s 4-0 victory over Leeds at Elland Road.
Rodri opened the scoring for Pep Guardiola’s men after converting Phil Foden’s delivery from the dead ball situation in the 13th minute.
Leeds certainly made it a competitive game throughout the first half but after the interval, their inability to defend set-pieces with authority once again cost them as Nathan Ake added a second from a corner.

City made it 3-0 in the 78th minute courtesy of Jesus, who latched onto Foden’s well-weighted pass and fired a shot past Illan Meslier before Fernandinho’s strike outside the box in added time completed the scoring.
Unsurprisingly, Jesus’ goal attracted plenty of attention on social media, with a plethora of Arsenal fans showering him with immense praise and urging their club to acquire his services.

Arsenal will be on the hunt to bolster their forward line and it’s no surprise to see why Mikel Arteta is keen on signing the Brazilian on a permanent deal.
Jesus is comfortable in each position across the frontline, with his versatility a huge asset he possesses within his game, which is a trait that Arteta demands from his players as being comfortable across different zones increases the team’s overall unpredictability.
Not to mention the fact that the 25-year-old will soon be approaching the last year of his contract, meaning that Gunners could sign him for a significantly low fee.
It will be interesting to see how this story develops once the window opens, but certainly, if the north Londoners were to strike a deal, they would be getting a player who provides plenty of quality and experience.
