Ankit is a 24-year-old, aspiring to have his voice heard through what he writes. Charismatic and frankly moral, adhering to his principles and beliefs. Out to search for a purpose in life and yet to settle on that matter.

In a recent report from Express, it is stated that Manchester City winger Gabriel Jesus has been offered to Tottenham Hotspur which comes as a huge blow to Arsenal who were in heavy pursuit of the forward.

Jesus’ Impressive Run Of Form For Manchester City

Jesus has experienced a solid campaign in the final third at the Etihad club, as he has managed to consistently perform for Man City this season. The 25-year-old has scored 13 goals and created 9 assists over 41 appearances across various competitions.

The Sao Paulo-born sensation has been reliable in the frontline as evident by his numbers averaging 2.3 shots, 1.4 key passes and 1.6 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Premier League. He has also been tidy while distributing the ball to his teammates after completing 84.8% of his attempted passes in the English top-flight (stats via whoscored).

Is the Manchester City Winger A Decent Fit For Antonio Conte?

Jesus can make some decent runs with the ball in the attacking third and create space for himself to shoot on target. He has transformed himself into being a goal threat causing trouble for his opponents.

The Brazilian striker can use his pace and agility to get past defenders, and also chip in with some crucial assists for his teammates. Jesus is primarily a striker but remains versatile enough to play in the right-wing or in the right midfield position when needed. He would no doubt add more balance and creativity to Antonio Conte‘s frontline

The Manchester City forward has made himself comfortable in the Premier League and would require no time to adapt to Tottenham Hotspur’s playstyle.

Jesus could help the Lilywhites challenge for a few major trophies over the coming seasons. His position in the Sky Blues squad is already threatened by Erling Haaland’s arrival, therefore Pep Guardiola has made the right decision in offering him to the Spurs this summer.
