In a recent report, Tuttosport claimed that Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus is on Juventus’ radar this summer. It is understood that the Turin outfit are eyeing a move to bring the Man City forward to the Allianz Stadium during this summer transfer window (via Tuttosport).
Jesus’ Impressive Numbers At The Etihad Stadium Last Season
Jesus had an encouraging season at Manchester as he managed to catch the eye by producing a handful of productive displays as the focal point of Pep Guardiola’s attack. The Brazilian striker participated in 42 matches for the Mancunian giants in the previous campaign, netting 14 goals and grabbing four assists in multiple competitions.
The 24-year-old managed to find some consistency with his contributions up top after he averaged 1.9 shots, 1.1 key passes and 1.7 dribbles per game in the 2020-21 Premier League season. He even interchanged possession quite well with his teammates in the final third as he made 85% of his attempted passes in top-flight football (stats via whoscored).
Jesus can be a productive goal-getter when he is getting a regular run of games on the pitch. However, Guardiola has often left him out of his first team over the past 12 months, so the talented striker could be tempted with an opportunity to join Juventus this summer.
Should Man City Cash In On Jesus This Summer?
Jesus is a quick and agile marksman who can make some energetic runs in behind the opponent’s backline. When the Brazilian sensation is firing on all cylinders, he can be a decent finisher in the final third. He has a knack for finding space and can contribute by scoring some important goals for his team.
However, Jesus’s time at the Etihad Stadium has been plagued by injuries, so it makes sense for Guardiola to cash in on him and use the money generated from his potential sale to bring in a suitable replacement who can lead the line for them in the Premier League week in week out. The Brazilian centre-forward still has the potential to become a world-class player in his position someday.
At 24, Jesus is about to enter the peak stage of his playing career but the lack of regular first-team football and frequent injuries has hampered his growth in English football. It is only fair to the player for Man City to let him leave and make a fresh start away from English football.
