Arsenal are reportedly ‘increasingly confident’ that they will sign Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus in the summer transfer window.

Jesus managed to hit a purple patch of form for Pep Guardiola’s team after reports surfaced that the Gunners had held talks with the player’s representatives back in April. This up-turn in form included grabbing a spectacular four goals against struggling Watford just days after the initial news came to light.

Since then, Jesus has become a regular in Guardiola’s starting line-up. However, according to Football Insider’s ‘sources’, the North London club are happy with the progression of the rumoured transfer.

They believe that Jesus has told friends that he is looking forward to linking up with former City coach Mikel Arteta at the Emirates. Elsewhere, Scottish champions Celtic are reportedly keen on Blues youngster Taylor Harwood-Bellis.

According to Sky Sports News, the Glasgow club are believed to be in the market for a central defender to help bolster their squad. Harwood-Bellis began the first half of the season on loan at Anderlecht before moving to Stoke City on a temporary deal in January.

The 20-year-old became an ever-present in the Potters line-up and featured in all of their remaining fixtures in the Championship this season.
