The Sun has obtained a photo of the 25-year-old arriving for his medical with the Gunners, meaning the move is in its final stages.

He was seen hugging fellow Brazilian Edu as he arrived to complete the move.

It is also understood that personal terms have already been agreed and he will become the club’s highest-paid player.

He will sign a five-year deal with Arsenal as Mikel Arteta lands one of his main summer targets.

He will also reunite Arteta with the striker, having spent time as Pep Guardiola’s assistant at City.

Jesus was keen to leave the Etihad after the club signed Erling Haaland, meaning his chances of playing for the first team have been drastically reduced.

He was signed for £27m from Palmeiras in 2017 and was seen as Sergio Aguero’s long-term successor.

Arteta will have a new striker this summer

The striker scored 95 goals in 236 club appearances, winning 10 trophies, including four Premier League titles.

Guardiola never seemed convinced that Jesus could be his hard-core striker, often opting to play without an acknowledged number nine last season.

For Arsenal, this greatly improves their attacking options following the departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in January and Alexandre Lacazette on a free transfer this summer.
