Arsenal’s takeover of Gabriel Jesus is a better asset than Tottenham’s Richarlison, says Tony Cascarino.
The Brazilian duo recently made their move to London with Richarlison swapping Goodison Park for Spurs, and Jesus nearing his move to join Arsenal.
Antonio Conte’s side completed their £60million swoop for the Everton frontman on Friday, while Jesus is expected to seal his £45million move to the Emirates in the coming days.
Ex-Chelsea striker Cascarino has joined the debate over who is the better coup, admitting he prefers Jesus to score more goals next season.

On talkSPORT, he said: ‘I think Gabriel Jesus ticks a lot more boxes and they have him for a better price.
“If you were to tell me now who will score the most 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, right and center forward for Man City.

Jesus has the more impressive trophy cabinet with four Premier League titles, four League Cups and an FA Cup since joining Manchester City in 2016.
While Richarlison has failed to lift any silverware at Everton or previously Watford, his goals at the end of last season have been crucial in helping the Toffees avoid relegation.
Jesus has largely been used as a support striker by Pep Guardiola, who previously favored Sergio Aguero or a false nine formation who omitted the need for a striker with the 25-year-old starting just 99 appearances for Man City.

Richarlison, on the other hand, started only 12 times on the bench and made 173 appearances at the highest level.
But it is Jesus who boasts the most impressive scoring record, with 58 goals compared to his compatriot’s 48 goals for Watford and Everton.
