ARSENAL are set to back manager Mikel Arteta this summer as they aim to close the gap to Liverpool and Manchester City.
The Gunners will reportedly target a pair of City stars to help them in their quest to return to title contention.
According to Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Gabriel Jesus is "top of Arsenal's list".
The Brazilian has enjoyed a spell in City's starting XI of late, but Erling Haaland's confirmed summer arrival could limit his role at the Etihad.
Arsenal are also "set to explore" the possibility of signing Raheem Sterling, with the England winger set to enter the final year of his City contract.
The Telegraph claim that the Gunners would love to swoop for Sterling.
