Jesus in particular remains open to leaving the current Premier League champions, with his representative holding talks with Edu throughout the past few months.

Arsenal technical director Edu has confirmed that he is ‘excited’ for the club’s plans in the summer transfer window. “The budget we used last summer, we prefer to use it to rebalance the squad, there was no point in hiring one or two players [in January], the squad was not prepared to absorb two players, we needed to rebalance the squad,” Edu told ESPN Brasil. “Maybe next season we can go to one or two players.

“Today we find a much more balanced squad. Our planning has already been done, it has already reached the owners. It’s a matter of step by step, how we are going to finish the season and to put in plan the planning that I’m very excited about.”
