Arsenal fans convinced that they have spotted Gabriel Jesus transfer hint in Erling Haaland announcement

Eagle-eyed Arsenal fans believe that they have spotted a clue about a move for Gabriel Jesus being closer than anticipated in Manchester City’s announcement of Erling Haaland.

The Cityzens have announced their long-awaited capture of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund, with the striker being unveiled in a Manchester City kit on social media on Monday morning.

But, it was the club statement that caught the eye of several Arsenal fans. At the bottom of the announcement, Manchester City revealed that a shirt number for Haaland will be ‘confirmed in due course’.

‘Haaland shirts will be made available once his squad number is confirmed in due course’, they claimed.

And, given that the Dortmund man spent two seasons with the no.9 adorned across the back of his Black and Yellow shirt in Germany, and wears the no.9 for Norway too, it is thought that he will take that number in Manchester.

However, the man in possession of it at present is none other than Arsenal target Gabriel Jesus, a fact not lost on the Gunners’ fanbase, as can be seen below.

Will Arsenal land Jesus?

Of course, despite the clear interest from Arsenal, they are not the only ones keen on the Brazilian.

Tottenham and Chelsea have both been credited with an interest in the current Manchester City no.9, while Arsenal’s lack of Champions League football could have weakened their pitch despite their clear need for a no.9.

It seems that all will become clear in the next few days.
