Agbonlahor issues Gabriel Jesus bombshell after Tottenham update - 'I've heard from a good source'

Tottenham could “easily hijack” Gabriel Jesus’ proposed move to Arsenal, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England forward revealed he had “heard from a good source” that Jesus wants to play out wide and Tottenham would be a better fit.

The Mirror reported earlier this week (19 June) that the two clubs are battling it out to sign the 25-year-old from Man City.

A Gunners source told Football Insider earlier this month (5 June) that they have agreed personal terms with the Brazil international and were increasingly confident of completing a deal.

“Gabriel Jesus, apparently, doesn’t want to play as a centre-forward,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.

“I heard that from a good source. Apparently, he wants to play on the wing, he prefers it there.

“If he is going in as a winger you can understand it. Some people may think he won’t want to be second choice for Harry Kane but he won’t be because he might be on the right, fighting with Kulusevski.

“Then you’ve got Son on the left with Kane. Maybe that’s where Spurs are at. He could be that competition on the right-hand side.

“Arsenal better be careful could easily hijack that deal. He’s not going to play as a striker for Spurs, he’s going to play as a right-winger.

“That would be a scary front three. Jesus, [Heung-min] Son and [Harry] Kane with [Dejan] Kulusevski as an option. They’ve got a lot of games to play next season so you want the competition.

“At Arsenal, you’re going to play as a centre-forward, you’re not going to play as a winger because they haven’t got one.

“I don’t think they’re going to start Nketiah up front with Jesus on one side and Saka on one side. I don’t think it will work. I think he would play as a striker.”
