As well as recent talks with the former Everton midfielder Jesus reminisced about their time together a few years ago.

"He helped me a lot [whilst 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" said the former Palmeiras man.

Jesus is expected to spearhead the young forward line that Arteta has at his disposal as they try to get back into the Champions League.
