Former football star Henry Thierry has reacted to Arsenal’s decision to sign Man City star Gabriel Jesus.

Henry in his statement hailed Jesus, praising the Brazilian’s goal-scoring instinct as a No.9.

The Brazil International has been linked with a move to Arsenal as a replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

As of now Arsenal’s striking options, Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are out of contract in the summer.

The reports claim Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland has agreed to a deal to join Manchester City which means Jesus can leave the Etihad.
