Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus, 26, will miss the start of the season due to a knee injury.
On February 2, global media outlet Sky Sports reported that ‘Jesus will miss the start of the season due to knee surgery’.
Gabriel Jesus was a highly touted prospect from a young age. He dominated the Brazilian league even before he reached adulthood. Many big European clubs were after him. Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, and Manchester United were among the clubs actively pursuing him.
It was Man City who landed him. While his time at City was fulfilling, it felt like he fell 2% short of expectations. Eventually, City bolstered their front line with the signing of Elling Holland, and he left in search of an opportunity.
His new destination for the 2022/23 season was Arsenal. At his new club, Jesus was even better. His decision-making, which had been criticized, was better than ever, and he was a near-perfect performer outside of the box. He even had seven assists. 먹튀검증
Injuries slowed him down. He suffered a knee injury against Cameroon in Qatar at the 2022 FIFA World Cup. He went under the knife and only returned at the end of the season. Luckily, his return to form came sooner than expected. Fans were excited to see what a healthy Jesus would do next season.
In preparation for the 2023/24 season, his knee gave him trouble again. On February 2, Arsenal manager Arteta said, “He had a bit of a problem with his knee. Unfortunately, he had an operation. He needs to rest for a few weeks.
Arsenal are not without options to replace Jesus. Eddie Nketiah and Gabriel Martinelli are on standby, while freshman Kai Havertz can also play up front. They’re good enough, but they’re not quite up to the task of replacing Jesus.
Arsenal will face Man City in the Community Shield on July 7. Four days to go. Arteta’s head is spinning.
