A London derby in the Premier League is a common thing, but apparently the hottest of them all is the North London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham.
A historical rivalry, which includes, among other things, noisy transitions of players between the teams.
This time a new front has been opened, on the part of the Roosters, who are trying to “snatch” the Gunners the intended procurement player, who has been set as their main target for this coming summer.
The intention is for Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus, who with the arrival of Arling Holland realized that his time at Manchester City was over.
Arsenal were the first, very determined, to turn to him, and did not shy away from the financial demand of around £ 50 million.
And here, while coach Mikael Arteta's team is delaying the closing of the deal, the hated neighbor started operating under the radar, turning to Gabriel Jesus' agent.
Tottenham are reportedly trying to take advantage of the fact that they will play in the Champions League next season, as opposed to Arsenal, thus tipping the scales in their favor, with coach Antonio Conte pushing hard to complete the deal.

For Arsenal, who are suffering from a lack of strikers, after leaving Alexander LaCassette for Lyon, it could be a tough blow for next season, and they are still building on the promise of the Brazilian's agent, Marcello Patinati, who said: "We talked to Arsenal and we love the project built there. Great his transfer to her. "
However, it should be noted that Patinati added: "Apart from Arsenal, there are six other teams that want Gabriel Jesus," so there is a possibility that in about a month and a half we will see him here in the country with Tottenham, who are coming to a showdown against Roma.
