That’s according to Tony Cascarino, who believes the Gunners have overtaken rivals Spurs in the transfer market.
Both teams were interested in both players, with Spurs withdrawing their interest in Jesus and Richarlison reportedly opting out of joining Arsenal.
Richarlison has joined Spurs in a deal worth up to £60m, while Jesus is expected to be announced as a £45m signing for the Gunners.
Speaking on talkSPORT, Cascarino said: “I think Gabriel Jesus ticks a lot more boxes and they have him at a better price.
“If you told me now who will score more goals, I would say Gabriel Jesus would score more goals than Richarlison for Tottenham. And he’s more versatile than Richarlison. Gabriel Jesus played left winger, right winger and centre-forward for Man City.
“He has an incredible work ethic. He plays every time I watch him, like Richarlison did at the end of the season.
“I’d like to see Richarlison be the player he can be and take all the other antics out of his game and become a much more complete player.”
