Bad news for Arsenal with reports claiming Jesus could be out for three months

Arsenal has been handed a major injury blow as reports reveal Gabriel Jesus is now set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

The Brazilian was injured at the World Cup this week and it was serious enough to rule him out of the entire competition.

His last game was the match against Cameroon and Arsenal had been hopeful he would be fit enough to return to training with them.

However, it has now been revealed via Metro Sport that he will require surgery and will be out of action for at least three months.

This is a major setback for Mikel Arteta’s side who have been flying high with him in their team this season and will now have to find a way to fill the void he will leave.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Jesus has been one of our key players and the striker’s injury will be a major blow to us as a club.

However, we will get a chance to make new signings next month and we can replace the Brazilian to ensure we have enough players to carry us through the second half of the term successfully.

Hopefully, our other attackers will step up, and this gives Eddie Nketiah a chance to shine.

  1. We can not rely on Nketiah, even if he begins well.

    We need a striker that is very influential in the game, that is what was great about Jesus, how absorbed he was with and without the ball, very influential / busy

    Three months, well that’s a swift kick in the teeth, F……………….K!

    1. He wasn’t interested in joining us last January, had his heart set on Juve, so what do you has changed now?

  2. Apparently back in London for surgery (unconfirmed) but surely Martinelli is a ready made replacement, similar work rate, pressing and with goals! ESR on the left or Eddie, who has played there before. No need for a replacement unless there is a Prem ready bargain out there somewhere.

  3. Bugger. That could be the season gone thanks to the bloody stupid winter WC.

    He’ll be very difficult to replace, there just aren’t many players like him (who play in a striker role).

  4. Let’s hope it’s weeks rather than months or we could be in a little bit of a sticky situation. On the bright side this emphasizes the need to make signings if we want to maintain a title charge and would now be very surprised if we repeat last January window and not add to the squad.

  5. As Herr Drier said above, it’s not official, no point in panic yet.

    A report in the Sun says:

    “Jesus, 25, is already out for about four weeks and is set to fly back to the UK to be evaluated by Arsenal doctors after leaving Brazil’s World Cup camp.
    According to sportv, if the forward ends up needing surgery then he will be sidelined for at least the next three months”.

    Key points:

    1. He’s not yet been evaluated by Arsenal’s medical people.

    2. The words “*if* the forward ends up needing surgery”… very different to saying that he *does* need surgery.

    I cba to wade through all the cookie settings for the article linked in this piece on the Metro site to see if their wording is any different (but I don’t see how they could know any more at this stage than anyone else).

  6. Oh well…can’t say we didn’t predict this at the start of the season. What else can I say? In Nketiah we trust.
