Arsenal told they have pulled off a transfer ‘bargain’ compared to Tottenham

Dean Saunders has claimed that Arsenal signing Gabriel Jesus compared to Tottenham’s capture of Richarlison is a ‘bargain’, as he told talkSPORT. 

On Monday, Arsenal announced that they have added Jesus to their books after his transfer from Premier League champions, Manchester City.

It has been reported by BBC Sport that the Gunners have paid those at the Etihad £45 million for the number nine.

In comparison, Jesus’ international teammate, Richarlison, moved to Spurs for a fee in the region of £60 million. 

Putting all of that in mind, Saunders thinks only one side of north London has got the better deal. 

“How much did they pay for him, about £45 million,” said Saunders. “And Richarlison cost £60 million. That’s a bargain.”

Given the difference in fee, it’s understandable why Jesus feels like the better deal out of the two. 

Plus, Jesus will play on a more regular basis than Richarlison, or so it seems, and that in his favoured position. 

Tottenham’s new man likes to play out on the left, if not, then down the middle, but those two spots are occupied by a certain Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son.

But perhaps the argument will be that whichever left-sided or central-attacker joins Tottenham, then most of them will play second fiddle to the record-breaking duo they already have at the club.

Either way, this seems like a top deal for both clubs, as they will battle it out once more for those Champions League spots next season.
