Morning Arsenal fans
Arsenal are battling London rivals Chelsea in the race to sign Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus.
The Gunners are claimed to be leading the race to prise the Brazilian away from the Etihad this summer.
But they face competition from the Blues, with Thomas Tuchel said to be a huge admirer of the ex-Palmeiras ace.
German reporter Christian Falk tweeted: “Thomas Tuchel would also like to work with striker Gabriel Jesus.”
Meanwhile, Arsenal have been told how much it would take to sign Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Gunners have already failed with an initial £27million bid rising to £34m with add-ons.
And it has been said that the Serie A outfit would be willing to cash in on the 23-year-old this summer.
The Italian news outlet states that Arsenal can secure the services of the centre-forward should they stump up £42.5m.
In other news, Arsenal will reportedly offer William Saliba a new contract with the defender tied down at the Emirates until 2024.
That is despite the Frenchman yet to feature for the Gunners since joining from Saint-Etienne in 2019.
Saliba is expected to battle for a starting spot next term with Ben White and Gabriel Magelhaes.
And according to L’Equipe, such is their desire to keep the youngster, Arsenal will hand him fresh terms to convince him he has a future in North London.
Finally, Alexandre Lacazette has sealed his emotional return to Lyon after being released by the Gunners.
The French centre-forward has penned a three-year deal back at his former employers.
