Transfer News: Mikel Arteta has revealed how Arsenal beat Tottenham Hotspur to Gabriel Jesus

Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta, while speaking to the press ahead of the game against Tottenham Hotspur, as quoted by Football. London has revealed how the Gooners beat Spurs in the race for Gabriel Jesus.

“We, the first one Edu, had a talk with him to explain the project, what the club is about, what his role would be. I also spoke to him so it was a team effort. He understood what we wanted to do. Of course the relationships that we already had helped a lot with that and then there was that trust and connection already and then it’s up to the player to decide.”

Both the clubs were in the race to sign the Brazilian striker. Renowned journalist, Fabrizio Romano revealed exclusively in his Caught Offside column that Spurs were in for both Jesus and Richarlison.

“Tottenham were pushing for Gabriel Jesus as concrete option before while they were negotiating for Richarlison, this is Fabio Paratici style to negotiate for many players at the same moment.”

At the end of the day, Jesus moved to the Emirates while Richarlison moved to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium. Jesus was clear that he wanted regular game-time, something that our neighbours could afford to offer.

The same cannot be said for Spurs. If the striker had joined Antonio Conte’s side, he would have to fight for his place in the team. Harry Kane can be said to be untouchable, while Heung-min Son and Dejan Kulusevski have been in terrific form.

Jesus would have received a similar, if not the same, situation as in Manchester City. He would likely not be a regular starter. Richarlison, meanwhile, has started to cement himself in the team after he came off the bench in the first four games for Spurs.

Both the players have been in good form for their teams this season. Richarlison was also called up for international duty where he shone. The Brazilian international scored three goals in two friendly games against Ghana and Tunisia. Jesus, meanwhile, was snubbed this time.

More Tottenham News:

The two teams will go head-to-head tomorrow (October 1). Both the Brazilians are likely to start the games for their sides. Fans will hope that it is Richarlison who comes out as the winner in the north London derby.
