Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus has emerged as a surprise target for Inter Milan in the summer transfer window.
The 23-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Brazil international was signed by Manchester City in January 2017 from Palmeiras for a fee of 32 million euros. The 23-year-old has a contract until 2023 with the club.
The striker has featured in 40 matches for Manchester City this term, netting 18 goals and providing 9 assists in all competitions.
The 23-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in Brazil. As a member of Brazil national football team, Jesus won 39 caps and he scored 18 goals.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Inter Milan.
Antonio Conte has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe. He is a long term admirer of Gabriel Jesus and believes he can get the most out of the Brazil international.
This approach of signing exciting talent from different parts of the globe can reap rewards for Inter in the future.
There is no doubt that Jesus will take Inter Milan’s attack to a different level.
According to the report, “Serie A side Inter Milan could move for Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus, if Lautaro Martinez joins Barcelona this summer. La Blaugrana have been heavily linked with a move for the Argentina international, when his €111m release clause is activated in July. The La Liga side have also been linked with a player swap deal, with Ivan Rakitic or Arturo Vidal potentially heading in the opposite direction. However, with Antonio Conte’s side refusing to budge on their cash only demand, Barcelona will need to raise the funds through sales. If Martinez does make the move to Spain, according to reports from the Manchester Evening News, Inter have targeted Jesus as a replacement.”
