Tottenham manager Antonio Conte has abandoned his interest in Gabriel Jesus, giving Arsenal and Chelsea a clearer run against the Manchester City striker.

But Conte’s Spurs and Chelsea are vying for Richarlison, who wants to leave Everton but is valued at over £50m.

And Spurs are also in a feud with arch-rivals Arsenal over Leeds’ Raphinha, coveted by Barcelona too but who would charge a similar fee.

This makes for a Selection-themed side show for the summer transfer market and which can see every London club end the window with a brilliant new Brazilian international in their ranks.

Jesus, 25, has one more year on his contract with City and is set to leave following the signings of forwards Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez.

Arsenal have a long-term interest in the former Palmeiras striker, whom Mikel Arteta worked with during his time as Pep Guardiola’s starter at City.

The Gunners are looking forward to a new frontman following the free departures of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette in January and this summer respectively, although Eddie Nketiah has signed a new contract.

They were boosted in their search for Jesus by Spurs dropping out of the race.

Tottenham are interested in a versatile striker and were interested, but are now focusing on Richarlison and Raphinha as well as other attacking targets.

Richarlison, 25, switched agencies last year hoping for a change at the end of the season, although the Toffees don’t sell him cheaply.

He can play both out and in the middle, which is appealing to Spurs who would like to lighten the load off Harry Kane, while Chelsea are after a new striker after agreeing to loan Romelu Lukaku back to Inter Milan.

If the Spurs can lure Raphinha, 25, from Elland Road, they could move to another forward to serve as a backup for Kane.
