Gabriel Magalhaes has revealed his role in Gabriel Jesus moving to Arsenal.

The Brazil teammates have linked up at the Emirates following the latter's summer switch from Manchester City.

"Gabriel is a really good guy," Magalhaes told Sky Sports of his new team-mate.

"Of course, it helps that we have the Brazilian link.

"When we were on international duty, we discussed his future and I was telling him, 'Come to Arsenal! Come to Arsenal!'

"Maybe I had a bit of an influence there."

On what Jesus brings to the team, Magalhaes added: "He is someone who is very focused and really enjoys working hard.

"He is here to improve the team and he is already doing that. He has come here with big expectations. He wants to achieve big things with Arsenal. I think he is really going to help us."
