Gabriel Jesus’ injury could force Arsenal to sign another central striker this summer.
Gabriel Jesus’ knee injury could sideline him for three months, according to Mikel Arteta. let looks at four players who could be signed by Arsenal to replace Jesus.
The January window may be Arsenal’s best chance to sign Yeremy Pino. Villarreal’s 20-year-old winger has also played in the middle.
Arteta’s versatility would be a big selling point with Wenger’s free-flowing attacking style. Arsenal weren’t expected to pay £42m for Pino this summer, but a move in January may be too good to pass up.
Tammy Abraham was linked with a Premier League return this summer after impressing at Roma. Before pursuing Jesus, Arsenal reportedly considered a bid.
The 25-year-old just missed out on a World Cup call-up and a return to the English top flight may help his chances in 2024 European Championship qualifying. Abraham, 25, fits the mold of the type of player Arsenal wants to sign.
Jesus Ferreira, unproven in Europe, scored 18 goals in MLS last season. Ferreira was limited to 45 minutes of World Cup action and struggled to impress Arsenal.
