Arsenal adds more fire to their pursuit of Premier League striker

Arsenal is stepping up their chase for the signature of Gabriel Jesus as their summer plans begin to take shape.

Mikel Arteta’s side will add new players to their squad in this transfer window and the priority is on getting at least one new striker.

The Gunners lost Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the January transfer window and The Daily Mail reports that Alexandre Lacazette has agreed to return to Lyon as a free agent.

His departure leaves more voids to be filled in the offensive department, and the report adds that his departure has made Arsenal step up their pursuit of Jesus.

The Manchester City striker is also interested in a move to the Emirates, and he doesn’t mind if he will not play in the Champions League next season.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Jesus will struggle to play at City next season after they signed Julian Alvarez and Erling Haaland, and he would be smart to accept a new challenge at Arsenal.

Arteta knows him very well from working together at City before the manager moved to Arsenal, and he would be keen to see what plans the Spaniard has for him.

  1. Hopefully at a good price, nowhere near the rumored 55 million some reports have stated.
    If the player is eager to move that should help negotiations to ensure a more realistic price for a player entering his final year, and no longer a primary option for his club.

  2. Why we invest 50M on jesus, I don’t see jesus bring any better results than Nketiah except his name, Nketiah is young, he can run, he is young, can be benched. We should use the 50M to buy higher quality striker

  3. If its over £30m then we are being over priced for Jesus, he is Pepes replacement i am hoping and not Lacas but on his replacement too.

    I just watched a video of your man Scamacca from Sassuolo from Italy, checked his stats etc… Looks a unit of a player with a fierce strike especially from outside the box. Ticks alot of boxes just like Nunez but alot cheaper & possibke giving we are not in UCL and i am sure Nunez may be going to a club in that competiton.

    I had forgotten all about him and apparently according to a site on West Hams rumours we have lodged a bid for this player WHU wanted. It’s on NewsnowArsenal too. Interesting

    1. He is around 6’5 in height I believe, fits the age profile, and can offer a Plan B in the box as well.

      A good investment for the right price, although I admit I don’t know if his club would sell, or what fee they would demand.

  4. Jesus scoring stats after 6 seasons playing for the top team in the premiere league: 2016-17 played 10 games, 7 goals, 2017-18 played 29 games, 13 goals, 2018-19 played 29 games, 7 goals, 2019-20 played 35 games, 14 goals and in 2020-21 played, 8 goals (4 against relegated Norwich).A total of 58 goals in 159 premiere league games after 6 seasons.l really thought Arsenal would be buying a striker that can score more than 15 goals at least, per season. A striker who can score 20 plus goals is what Arsenal needs.Jesus costs 50m pounds, while man.city paid only 52m pounds for Haaland. I would rather spend 20m pounds or less to buy Taiwo Awoniyi instead. But,the first choice striker should be Darwin Nunez.

    1. what do you think about Haller? He would not be as expensive as Nunez. Also, Nkunku

      We need a tall striker with presence in the box.

  5. Jesus is not a top class striker arsenal need, Nunez, Martinez, Scamacca etc would be good signings

  6. Honestly I think SmithRowe would score more goals as a striker (false 9) than Jesus and Abraham. Let’s not forget goals do not have to come through the centre forward. Martinelli, Saka and SmithRowe can all score goals. Who was Liverpool’s leading scorer this season? Does he play through the middle? Who was City’s leading goalscorer? Chelsea’s? Tottenham’s? and ours? Who was West Ham’s leading scorer?. Only Man United of the top 6 had a centre forward as a top goalscorer and what did they win?

    Sure in other leagues like Germany and Spain a couple of old legends Benzema and Lewandowski have proved that a top class centre forward is important, but even France it’s not a centre forward 8ts Mbappe and in Italy Immobile is not a real centre forward in my opinion.

    We as Arsenal supporters need to accept that the best centre forwards do not play for us or are not available. Kane, Ronaldo, Messi, Lewandowski, Benzema, Vlahovic. However in Martinelli, SmithRowe, Nketiah and Saka we have 4 forwards capable of scoring 10-15 goals each. I do not think there are many other centre forwards around that can score 20+ other than those mentioned and 4 of those are 35+
