Report: Man City Star 'Likes' EPL Rivals

Reports suggest that one of Manchester City's star players likes the prospect of potentially joining a Premier League rival.

According to Gabriel Jesus' agent Marcelo Pettinati, the Brazilian appreciates the project Mikel Arteta is building at Arsenal, but he also admitted that the north Londoners will face stiff competition for the forward's signature.

"We had talks with Arsenal about Gabriel Jesus, we like the project – it's a possibility we're discussing," Pettinati told Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.

"There are six more clubs interested in Gabriel – he's focused on the final games with Man City, we'll see."

Since joining the Citizens from Palmeiras for 32 million (R543 million) in 2017, the 25-year-old has enjoyed plenty of domestic success, having won three Premier League titles, four English League Cups and one FA Cup.

His 95 goals and 46 assists in 234 games under Pep Guardiola means the forward has been averaging a goal involvement every 100 minutes since arriving at the Etihad Stadium.

Despite this, Jesus has largely played second fiddle to the various attacking options at Guardiola's disposal over the past few years, and it seems not much will change in that regard with the club signing Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.

It was reported last month that the 2019 Copa America winner has okayed a move to the Emirates. The Brazil international worked under Arsenal boss Arteta when the Spaniard was an assistant coach with the reigning Premier League champions, and that will perhaps give the Gunners the leverage needed to get the signing over the line.

Jesus will soon be entering the final 12 months of his contract in Manchester, and City will not want to lose the asset on a free, paving the way for potential suitors to make their move for the Selecao forward.

Here are the 10 highest earners at City after Haaland's arrival at the club:
