Reported Tottenham Hotspur target Gabriel Jesus plans to have showdown talks with Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, according to The Times.

Tottenham are interested in signing Jesus from City in the summer transfer window, according to The Daily Star.

The report at the weekend claimed that the 24-year-old Brazil international striker is valued at £70 million, and that Spurs could sell Harry Kane to City if they get him as well as £70 million.

The Times are now reporting that the Brazilian striker will hold talks with Guardiola in the coming weeks to gauge how much playing time he will get.

Jesus is a good striker, but the 24-year-old is not at the level of Sergio Aguero, who has now joined Barcelona after leaving City.

City’s reported interest in Kane suggests that Guardiola does not fancy Jesus to lead the line for his side next season.

Ferran Torres has also been deployed upfront at times despite being a winger by trade.

Jesus made 22 starts and seven substitute appearances in the Premier League for City this season.

The 24-year-old scored nine goals and gave four assists in those games.

The striker also scored two goals in seven Champions League games for the Citizens this season.

A move to Tottenham would see Jesus become the number one striker if Kane leaves and would see him get more playing time.
