Gabriel Jesus has shared that his conversation with Pep Guardiola before his transfer to Arsenal was ‘really good’, but it’s something he expected because of their ‘amazing relationship’, as he told Sky Sports.

The Brazil international is starting to get warm into his new environment following his transfer from Manchester City earlier this month.

Jesus was plucked from the footballing-mad world of Brazil as a teenager by Guardiola and the now 25-year-old went on to win four Premier League titles with the legendary coach.

Mikel Arteta being in Arsenal’s dugout would have, no doubt, played a huge part in Jesus’ transfer, but he also mentioned his fellow countryman and the club’s technical director, Edu Gaspar.

“I am really happy to be here,” said Jesus. “The way everyone welcomed me was amazing. They make me feel at home.

“First of all, Edu come to talk to me and ask me ‘How I am? How I am feeling as a person and as a football player what do I want in the future?’, so I think the conversation between me and Edu was amazing. I was so happy with the project of the club and straightaway I say ‘yes, I think my way is in London’.

“It was good. The conversation between me and Pep was really good. I expected that because we have an amazing relationship. He called me when I was young in Brazil, then I accept to come to work with him.

“He’s one of the greatest managers of all time and I have a very good relationship with him.”

HOW MANY GOALS CAN JESUS SCORE?

Arsenal are looking for that 15+ goal Premier League striker and Jesus has a big chance to meet those fans’ expectations.

When it came to the big games at the Etihad, Guardiola used Jesus on a number of occasions, which proved just how much he valued the player.

That included games such as the Champions League final, so it will be interesting to see how he will fare in the Premier League and in the Europa League.

The latter is a competition the fans will be expected to win and it’s a tournament where Jesus can become the top dog, in terms of the goals he can score.
