Gabriel Jesus would be a suitable option for the Gunners.
The Manchester City forward is expected to leave Etihad in the summer with the arrivals of Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez slotting him down the pecking order.
He has been heavily linked with Arsenal in the last few weeks and move could capitalise in the coming days.
But Arsenal didn’t secure Champions League football for next season whereas Spurs secured a spot that would lure new players in the summer.
Former England winger John Barnes claims Arsenal would be a viable option for the Brazilian striker.
Barnes said to Metro: “Gabriel Jesus could suit either Tottenham Hotspur or Arsenal. Both have good managers and are good clubs.
“From a club perspective, Arsenal are more in need of a centre forward than Spurs when you look at the fact that they still have Harry Kane and Son Heung-min.
“But this is modern football – in the old days if a club wanted you, you’d move there, there wasn’t an auction like it is today with other clubs. A player went to the club that came in for them, without a deal being hijacked.
“From Gabriel Jesus’s point of view, he also has to ask himself with Kane and Son if he’d be playing regularly in the same position, which he won’t. Arsenal need Jesus more and he’ll be better suited there.”
