Gabriel Jesus: Arsenal in talks to sign Manchester City striker



Arsenal is one of several clubs interested in Gabriel Jesus, who is believed to be valued by City at £50m; The 25-year-old scored 13 goals last season and made 12 assists from 28 starts in all competitions. Premier League champions don't want to lose Jesus but understand his desire to get regular first-team football. The arrival of Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez is likely to shorten their playing time at City. The 25-year-old scored 13 goals last season and made 12 assists from 28 starts in all competitions. He arrived at the club from Palmeiras for Brazil in 2016 and went to the nets 95 times in 236 matches.



This inequality places Arteta's side 15th for the XG difference, which measures the gap between the goals and the XG. A low xG difference suggests you are missing out on high-quality opportunities - only Brighton, Leeds, and the three relegated teams had a lower xG difference than Arsenal.



The main culprit in this regard is Alexandre Lacazette, who scored just two non-punitive goals from 46 shots and an xG return of 6.84. Only Brentford's Brian Mbumo outperformed his XG this season by a wide margin.
