Agbonlahor snubs Haaland, names best summer signing in England
Erling Haaland of Manchester City is not the best acquisition of the recently closed summer transfer period, claims Gabriel Agbonlahor of Aston Villa.
The former England international believes that Gabriel Jesus of Arsenal is the best summer acquisition.
Jesus helped the Gunners move to the top of the table after seven games after leaving Manchester City for Arsenal in a £45 million deal this summer.
The Brazilian already has four goals in his basket, along with four assists to his name.
Haaland, for his part, moved to the Etihad from Borussia Dortmund for £51m this summer and has scored 11 Premier League goals from his opening seven games, as well as one assist.
The Norwegian has also netted thrice in two matches in the Champions League, but Agbonlahor is of the opinion that Jesus was the better summer signing.
“The best signing is Gabriel Jesus for me,” he told talkSPORT.
“Haaland has been outstanding, but City always did well without him, and scored ridiculous goals without him."
“Gabriel Jesus has turned Arsenal into something else. They have got a striker now who doesn’t labour when he is pressing defenders. "
