Arsenal are confident of finalising the transfer of Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus, according to ESPN.
The Brazil international has been identified as the Gunners’ top transfer target for the centre-forward position.
Their opening bid of £30m was recently turned down by Manchester City, and the club are still confident of securing his services.
The Cityzens want around £50m for their player, but the Gunners plan to negotiate a lesser sum while including add-ons.
If they manage to finalise a suitable agreement, a move could be straightforward with personal terms already agreed.
Jesus could become the club’s second highest earner behind midfielder Thomas Partey with wages of £190,000-a-week.
An agreement is also in place to sign Porto attacker Fabio Vieira, and an announcement will be made after the photoshoots.
