KIERAN TIERNEY has revealed the first thing he told Gabriel Jesus following his switch to Arsenal was he's glad he no longer has to play against him.

The Gunners forked out £45million to bring the 25-year-old striker to the Emirates from Manchester City last month.

And he has been quick to show his class having banged in seven goals in pre-season to leave fans purring over his performances.

It's not just supporters that are buzzing over the Brazilian, with Tierney confident the club can achieve success with the ex-Palmeiras ace this campaign.

The Scotland international has set his sights on claiming a third trophy with Arsenal as well as returning to Europe's Premier League competition.

In an interview with Celtic legend Chris Sutton for the Daily Mail, Tierney was asked what would a perfect season would look like.

To which he said: "Personally, staying fit, getting a run of games, finding form.

"Collectively, getting into the Champions League and winning a trophy.

"The signings have been amazing, like Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City.

"The first thing I said to him was: 'I hated playing against you!'

"So I'm buzzing he's on our team now. There is a feeling in the camp, a different hunger, a different desire.

"Even the 6-0 win over Sevilla on Saturday.

"It's a pre-season friendly but you can only beat what's in front of you.

"We've got enough to be optimistic this season."
