Simon Jordan chooses between Jesus and Zinchenko as Arsenal’s better signing

Simon Jordan believes Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus are two top signings by Arsenal, but the Ukrainian is outshining his Brazilian teammate.

Both players joined the Gunners from Manchester City in this transfer window and their arrival has coincided with an upturn in form at the Emirates.

Their phenomenal performances have lifted Mikel Arteta’s side.

Jesus is doing great work up top, while Zinchenko has been superb at left-back and his performances have consigned Kieran Tierney to a place on the bench.

Jesus is tearing defences apart and has been praised for that, but Jordan believes Zinchenko has made the most impact of the two.

“At this moment in time, Gabriel Jesus looks like a Rolls-Royce in a very confident and buoyant Arsenal side. It is early days, but he has obviously been given the mantle and the pedestal and the belief that he’s the main man. And he’s taking advantage of that,” he told TalkSport.

“At £45 million, in the market, it looks good. Arsenal look good.

“But I think the person who looks absolutely phenomenal is Zinchenko.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Jesus and Zinchenko have been great to watch in an Arsenal shirt and we hope it continues beyond this start of the campaign.

We have a solid team now and it seems only injury or suspension can stop us from winning games.

We probably need to get a few more players in before the transfer window closes.

  1. NO “probably ” about it MARTIN. Try DEFINITELY!

    If we really DO want to make a proper title challenge then we need four top players still. Another striker, a DM of real quality- not had anyone at all of proper quality (as against overhyped ones) since Gilberto.

    We also need a central attacking midfielder and a right winger. Probably £200mill to seriously title challenge THIS YEAR. But at very best we MIGHT get one half decent player only.

    1. I think we need three, excluding the attacking mildfielder.

      Doubt we would spend too much cash in the remaining days.

      Personally, I see maybe one more signing coming in. I hope it is someone to challenge Saka.

  2. Pat ??
    Surely my post didn’t break any rules .
    I have a problem with that radio station which I’ve never hidden .
    Go back 8-10 years and tell me I do not have a point .

  3. Zinchenko has played very well, but Jesus is the reason the team scores a lot of goals quite frequently. Hard to put a price on that – it puts so many games on cruise control that would otherwise be a dogfight.

    But in reality, the question isn’t useful – it’s like asking “which is better, an apple or a pear?”.

    1. I agree Reggie.Let’s see how Zinchenko performs against a top quality winger which he has yet to face this season.Don’t get me wrong, for I consider both to be excellent acquisitions, but our Ukrainian is not a natural left back and is honest enough to admit this.

  4. Jesus is irreplaceable, Zinchenko not so. Jesus has been the most impressive of the two but thats only opinion.

  5. The writer have me wondering if we are talking about the same two players.

    Surely Zinchenko is a very good signing and to think he wasn’t in the picture, but with our goal God rooting up trees going unnoticed is another matter
