EPL Agbonlahor snubs Haaland, names best summer signing in England. Erling Haaland of Manchester City is not the finest acquisition of the just closed summer transfer period, claims Gabriel Agbonlahor of Aston Villa.
The former England great believes that Gabriel Jesus of Arsenal is the finest summer acquisition.
Jesus helped the Gunners go to the top of the standings after seven games after leaving Manchester City for Arsenal in a £45 million transfer this summer.
The Brazilian player already has four goals and four assists to his credit.
Haaland, who transferred from Borussia Dortmund to the Etihad this summer for £51 million, has 11 Premier League goals and one assist in his first seven appearances.
The Norwegian has also scored three goals in two Champions League games, but Agbonlahor believes that Jesus was the superior summer acquisition.
Gabriel Jesus is my best signing, he said to talkSPORT.
“Haaland has been fantastic, but City has always performed admirably without him and scored absurd goals without him.
“Gabriel Jesus has changed what Arsenal is now. They now have a striker that is efficient when pressuring defenses.
