Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand backed Gabriel Jesus to sign for Arsenal this summer.
Gabriel is still linked with a move to Arsenal this summer with Mikel Arteta keen to bolster the club’s attack ahead of the new season. Arsenal released Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during the January transfer window and Alexandre Lacazette’s future is unclear as his contract is nearing its expiration date at the end of this season.
“You talk to the guys about him, they appreciate him because he puts a good load on the work, he has quality,” he said in his Vibe with Five Podcast, critic Ferdinand.
“I think if he plays constantly for a team like Arsenal, I think he scores goals for you.”
The Brazilian scored 57 goals and provided 32 assists for City in 155 matches.
