The links with Jesus come amid speculation that City are looking to upgrade their attack ahead of next season by bringing in Jack Grealish and Harry Kane from Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur respectively.
Jesus is one player who could be forced to leave City this summer if the club need to generate funds for the potential signing of Harry Kane, who has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League champions.
Juventus needs a new striker and they have been linked with moves for several attackers ahead of the new campaign.
They have already secured the permanent arrival of Alvaro Morata already this summer, but the Old Lady may need to bolster their attack further.
According to The Sun, Juventus appear ready to ‘firm up’ their interest in Gabriel Jesus, amid ongoing uncertainty over Cristiano Ronaldo’s future.
The report claims that the premier league champions are open to letting their striker depart for Turin – but they will demand cash up front as part of any deal as they chase Harry Kane and Jack Grealish.
The 24-year-old, who has two years remaining on his current contract, has made 195 appearances for City across all competitions, scoring 82 goals and providing 34 assists.
The report was shared on Twitter by City Xtra and City Chief, and it attracted plenty of attention from the fans, who took to the social media platform to share their thoughts on the speculation.

Honestly G Jesus has had his time but didn't lift up to expectations. Going to Juventus be a win win for us.— Dela Dela (@nsangong) July 15, 2021
If we’re getting more than 60m I won’t be complaining— Harry 🥶 (@Harry_MCFC891) July 15, 2021
