Tottenham Ready to Battle Arsenal for Manchester City Star Following 'Uncertain Future' Admission

Tottenham are prepared to enter the race to sign Arsenal-linked Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City in the summer, according to a new report.

Manchester City have made their move early ahead of the summer transfer window by closing a deal for Borussia Dortmund talisman Erling Haaland, who will join the Premier League champions on July 1 after spending two-and-a-half seasons at the Signal Iduna Park.

The Blues will also see River Plate's Julian Alvarez arrive at some point in the coming months after announcing his signing on the final day of the January transfer window, with the 22-year-old Argentine set to add further depth to City's wide attacking outlets next term.

With just over 12 months left on their respective contracts at the Etihad Stadium, it remains to be seen what the future holds for Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez and especially Gabriel Jesus, who has widely been linked with a summer switch to Arsenal.

"I have in my head very clear what I want. Today, I want to celebrate a lot with City. I am very happy here (at Manchester City). If everything goes well for me, my wife and our family, Helena (Jesus' daughter) will come to the world. 

"I have to take advantage of this moment. Then, (I will) think about the team. On vacation, I (will) decide my future."
