Gabriel Jesus admits he has always had Arsenal in heart as he claims he is fully interested in Mikel Arteta’s project.

Brazil international player Gabriel Jesus admits he has always had Arsenal in his heart when he was young and claims it’s a dream to play for the Gunners.

Jesus completed a move from Manchester City to Arsenal in a deal that is worth £45million, penning down a long-term contract with Gunners.

“I followed Arsenal when I was young because of [Thierry] Henry,” Jesus told the club’s website.

“Obviously I didn’t follow too many European teams but when I saw some of the players that played here, I was like ‘wow, this club is big’.

“When I played against Arsenal I was looking at the Emirates and it was a very good stadium, so I’m very excited to play here.

“I’m so happy to sign for this big club. Since day one when I knew I could come to play for Arsenal, I was happy.

“I know the staff, I know some players, the Brazilian ones. I know there are a lot of top players.

“They are young and I’m still young as well, so I am so happy to be here to help.

“I come to help, to learn as well and to try to do my best.”

The Brazilian has worked with Mikel Arteta when the Spaniard was Pep Guardiola’s assistant at Manchester City.

Jesus stated in his interview with the club media that he has spoken with Arteta and he is interested in the project.

“We spoke a couple of times about the club, the players, the project and the future,” Jesus said to Arsenal.com.

“I believe 100 per cent in Mikel.

“I had a very good time with him before, he’s a very good guy and a very good coach as well.

“He helped me a lot [at Manchester City].

“We would always stick together after the training sessions and do some finishing or something.

“He’s a very intelligent guy and was an amazing player, so if he knows something he can teach me or the young players.”
