Mikel Arteta Close To Signing A Striker Who Could Be Arsenal's Saviour Next Season.

Arsenal is expected to make the signing of Manchester City star Gabriel Jesus for the upcoming season public within the next few hours.


Because of his time spent with the Brazilian at Manchester City, Arteta is a big fan of the player and hired him to work with the Gunners in 2019.


Gabriel feels he needs a new challenge away from Etihad because he has primarily served as a bench player for the Citizens since joining from his boyhood club in Brazil under Pep Guardiola.


Gabriel Jesus has been an integral part of Tite's Brazilian national side over the past couple of years, despite being passed over on multiple occasions by the Spaniard. Because of this, Edu, the sporting director at Arsenal, is actively pursuing him.


Gabriel Jesus appears to have already shown how he could turn things around at the North London club if he were to join them. This could help bring Arsenal back to the level of competition they once occupied.


Gabriel, speaking in 2021, affirmed that he might be a defensive asset if deployed on the flanks, as he had done for Brazil in his previous two years of playing for the national team.


"For you guys it might have seemed strange, but for me no, because I've been playing like a winger in Brazil for the national team for the last two years," he remarked in August 2021. Playing on the right flank has become more natural for me. All I can do to aid my team defensively is make runs from behind the defense.


And if Gabriel can bring this kind of brilliance to Arsenal next season, he could be able to help the Gunners fix their problems in the defensive line and the attacking third.
