Jesus, who previously worked with Mikel Arteta when the latter was an assistant coach at City, will sign a five-year contract with Arsenal.
Man City could use the funds to seal a move for Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips.
The deal ends Arsenal's search for a striker following the departure of Alexandre Lacazette, who is returning to Lyon. Arsenal elected not to buy a striker in January despite Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joining Barcelona.
Earlier this month, Eddie Nketiah signed a new five-year contract with the club.
Jesus has long been identified as a critical target for Arteta, who will hope that the Brazil international will provide his team with an extra edge in attack.
