Gabriel Agbonlahor has stated that Arsenal’s acquisition of Gabriel Jesus, rather than Manchester City’s acquisition of Erling Haaland, was the summer’s most important signing.
Gabriel Agbonlahor Talks On Jesus And Haaland Signing
After activating a £51 million release clause in Haaland’s contract to entice the Norwegian away from Borussia Dortmund, the Premier League winners sold Jesus. Just a few weeks later, the Gunners spent almost £45 million to end Jesus’ five-year stay at the Etihad.

Since their high-profile transfers, both strikers have been productive. Haaland has scored an amazing 14 goals in 10 games for City, while Jesus has four goals and three assists in his first seven matches for Arsenal.
Jesus has been vastly outclassed by Haaland, but Gabriel Agbonlahor is sure that the Brazilian forward’s contributions at the Emirates Stadium go far beyond his goal total, making him the Premier League’s summer acquisition.
Ex Aston Villa man told talkSPORT that for him, Gabriel Jesus is the best person signed. Although Haaland has been exceptional, City has always performed admirably without him and has scored absurd goals without him. He said that Arsenal is now something different thanks to Gabriel Jesus and they now have an attacker who is efficient when pressing defenders. Gabriel Agbonlahor believes that Jesus has had a greater impact at his new club, although since coming to our shores, Haaland has already broken several top-flight records.
As a result of his goal in City’s victory over Wolves just before the break, Haaland became the first player in the history of the Premier League to score in each of his first four away games. By scoring nine goals in his first five league games, the striker broke the old record of eight goals per game held by City legends Micky Quinn and Sergio Aguero.
The Premier League’s all-time leading scorer Alan Shearer said that the former RB Salzburg player could even go on to surpass his outstanding goal total if he stays at the Etihad for a long enough period as a result of Haaland’s explosive start to life in the top division.
After Haaland scored a brace on his debut against, West HamShearer said that he knew he missed a sitter for his hat-trick but if he remains fit then he should be getting 30-40 goals, undoubtedly, with the opportunities that Man City produces.
He said that he believes Haaland will have a shot if he sticks around and stays in shape and Harry Kane, though, would disagree with that statement because he may have already violated it by that point.
