    Jesus was announced as an Arsenal player earlier today.

    Selection headache

    When Gabriel Jesus joins up with the Arsenal squad he is expected to become the club's main man up front.

    But Eddie Nketiah will have something to say about that.

    He scored five goals in the final seven games at the end of last season and netted a hat-trick in a pre-season win over Ipswich.

    Nketiah has just signed a new deal at the club and if he can keep his form up manager Mikel Arteta could have a tough decision to make.

    Good morning Arsenal fans

    Arsenal received a transfer boost in their bid to sign Ajax star Lisandro Martinez as the player's representatives have told the Dutch champs he wants to join the Premier League.

    However, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is confident he will sign Martinez.

    Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano tweeted: "Lisandro Martínez and his camp will be clear again with Ajax board: he only wants Premier League football.

    "So he wants to make a choice between Arsenal and Man United proposals, hoping for Ajax to let him go.

    "Erik ten Hag, confident on this deal – pushing again."

    Meanwhile, Leicester star Youri Tielemans is "fully sold" on a move to Arsenal in the summer.

    Tielemans is very keen to join the Gunners despite interest from United.

    CBS reporter Ben Jacobs told GiveMeSport: “He’s fully sold on a move to Arsenal, so if Manchester United were to bid for Tielemans, they will only get him if Arsenal decide that’s fine, go ahead and take the player. It’s not really a head-to-head.

    “I think that Manchester United’s potential interest in Tielemans, which is still to be stood up, could just catalyse Arsenal to make another bid or may have Arsenal say ‘I’m sorry, but we’re not interested. Go ahead and join Manchester United if you want’.

    “But I don’t think that Manchester United can beat Arsenal to Tielemans. It’s not a case of decide between the two.”

    And Arsenal are not interested in signing Bayern Munich star Serge Gnabry in the summer transfer window.

    That is according to Romano, who reports that Gnabry has a new contract proposal "still available".

    The transfer expert tweeted: "Understand Arsenal are not working to sign Serge Gnabry.

    "He’s not in the list, as things stand – Arsenal are now focused on different targets.

    "Gnabry has FC Bayern new contract proposal still available – no decision made yet on player side."

    Finally, Paulo Dybala is on United and Arsenal's radar after the Premier League clubs contacted his agent.

    Dybala is a free agent after being released by Juventus this summer following seven years of service in Turin.

    According to La Repubblica, both the Red Devils and the Gunners have made enquiries to the forward's representative Jorge Antun.

    However, Napoli are also believed to be in the running to keep the Argentina international in the Serie A.

    Reports suggest the Partenopei have been told that the 28-year-old is seeking a four-year contract.

    And they would have to pay the Argentine star £5.17million-a-year, which works out at around £100,000-a-week.

    But they would also have to fork out a further £86,000 in bonuses for Dybala

    Kev to be done

    Arsenal hero Kevin Campbell insists his former club needs to sign another midfielder and striker after sealing Gabriel Jesus this summer.

    Campbell told talkSPORT: "They’ve got to fix the midfield, it needs more goals, it needs more creativity, hence [Youri] Tielemans.

    "I still think Arsenal need an alternative striker, a big striker, someone who, when teams bank up and it’s not going so well, someone who you could fire crosses in, and he can get on the end of it.

    "I think Arsenal have missed that change of alternative in the set up and the flexibility of Jesus as well means he could start as a nine or he can play wide, he’s comfortable anywhere"

    Out of Nic

    Arsenal are struggling to offload club-record signing Nicolas Pepe with a loan to Spain on the cards.

    Pepe, who cost a staggering £72million in 2019, will be allowed to depart the Emirates this summer after being deemed as surplus to requirements by manager Mikel Arteta.

    According to PA, the forward's £140,000-a-week salary is proving to be a sticking point for potential suitors.

    A loan move is the most likely outcome for the Ivory Coast international, who mustered only one goal and two assists in 20 Premier League games last season

    Wilshere on Richarlison

    Tottenham signing Richarlison would not get into Arsenal's starting XI, claims their former star Jack Wilshere.

    Wilshere told talkSPORT: "I think he improves the squad, definitely… he gives them something different. I wouldn’t say I’m gutted. He’s 25, so not young.

    "There comes a point where you’re going to have to turn that potential into something but to be fair if any one can do it, it’s Antonio Conte.

    “I wouldn’t say I’m devastated as an Arsenal fan but he could be one to watch, he could be really good."

    Further quizzed about whether he'd have Richarlison at the Emirates, Wilshere added: "Yeah, but I don’t think he gets in the XI.

    "He’d definitely challenge for it and be a good part of the squad but I don’t think he gets in the XI"

    Cazorla has put pen to paper on a new deal tying him up with the club until 2023.

    The versatile midfielder's six-year stint at the Emirates came to an end in 2018 due to a series of heavy injuries.

    The Spaniard returned to Villarreal and moved to Al Sadd two years later
