AC Milan enter the race to sign Gabriel Jesus amidst Tottenham Hotspur transfer interest

According to 90min (h/t The Sun), AC Milan have joined the race to sign Gabriel Jesus amidst interest from Tottenham Hotspur for a potential transfer this summer. He has been heavily linked with a departure from Manchester City, which has prompted his side to respond with a new contract proposal.

Jesus’ prominence at The Etihad is at risk following Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez‘s arrivals this summer. That has seen him attract a host of attention with his camp assessing the options that lie ahead of them. Tottenham are one of them, and now Milan have become another potential destination.

That being said, Man City are eager to keep hold of the Brazilian and are hopeful about succeeding in their attempt after offering an extension. Their optimism is down to the fact that they supposedly believe that a “very good deal” has been put on the table, which could convince Jesus to stay for longer.

Can Spurs still sign Jesus?

With the weight of the added competition from the Champions League next season onwards, there is a major need to reinforce the forward line this summer. The 25-year-old would undoubtedly be a massive signing, considering how he is equally able to fill in across the attacking department.

We lack someone who can provide backup to Harry Kane, and we could see a similar scenario for Son Heung-Min and Steven Bergwijn ahead of the 2022/23 campaign. Bergwijn has been heavily touted to leave Spurs, with Ajax actively vying to get their hands on the winger.

Even if we have already signed Ivan Perisic, he would probably play as a left wing-back with the North Londoners being open to parting ways with Sergio Reguilon this summer. In such a case, Jesus would be of great help as Antonio Conte would be able to utilise the five substitution rule change to the full extent with quality additions like the Man City ace at his disposal.

That being said, we would now have to deal with the added competition from the Serie A side. They could use a young striker in their ranks, looking at how Olivier Giroud and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are nearing the end of their careers. Not to mention, they have also become genuine title contenders, making them a stern challenger indeed.

At the same time, we would also need to deal with Pep Guardiola’s side, who have planned an offensive from their side. We must convince Jesus not to accept the renewal offer, but whether that will happen or not remains to be seen.

The South American attacker is highly sought after by some of the top clubs across Europe, which makes life even more difficult for us. Arsenal, Barcelona, Chelsea, Juventus and Real Madrid are also in the fray, showcasing the number of obstacles that lie in our pathway.
