Arsenal's £45m signing Gabriel Jesus tips Tottenham rival Richarlison to challenge Mo Salah for Golden Boot next season | The Sun

ARSENAL forward Gabriel Jesus thinks Richarlison can win the Premier League Golden Boot – but he is going to fight his compatriot for the award.

Jesus, 25, is confident he will also challenge for the Golden Boot following his £45million move from Manchester City.

He has shown encouraging signs so far with four goals in three games following his arrival at Arsenal.

Jesus told Sky Sports: "I hope that we can both end the season fighting for the Golden Boot because I like him.
