Gabriel Jesus would be a great fit for Mikel Arteta’s side.
The Gunners are frontrunners in signing Man City forward Gabriel Jesus this summer transfer window.
Eddie Nketiah is reportedly signing a fresh new deal with the North London club whereas Lacazette has already left the club to join his former side, Lyon.
Jesus would go down the pecking order next season due to the arrival of both Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez.
So Arsenal would definitely push for a move for the Brazilian whose versatility and fluidity would be crucial for Arteta.
He has scored 58 goals in 159 appearances for the Cityzens so far.
Merson wrote on SportsKeeda: “I thought Alexandre Lacazette would kick on after Aubameyang left, but he didn’t really get going.
“He’s a much better player than his performances this season have shown him to be.
“Arsenal have been linked to Gabriel Jesus and I think he’ll be a great fit alongside Eddie Nketiah, who’s going to get better.”
