‘We can achieve a lot’ – Exit-linked Gunner ‘very happy’ at Arsenal

Gabriel Jesus has dismissed rumours of an exit from Arsenal after months of links over a potential move to Juventus.

The defender has played every minute of our Premier League campaign thus far, despite the impressive uprise of William Saliba after his return from loan. Ben White has even moved out wide to accommodate all three of our impressive defenders, and it was thought that the Frenchman’s return could have been reduced the role of the Brazilian which clearly isn’t the case.

Gabriel has now moved to dismiss reports which had linked him to a potential move away from the club this summer, claiming he is ‘very happy’ with the direction that the project at Arsenal is headed, adding that he believes we will ‘achieve’ together.

“It’s always nice to get that recognition but I’m really focused on Arsenal,” Gabriel told SkySports.

“I am very happy here. I’ve got a good relationship with my teammates and I am fully committed to the project.

“I am convinced that, with the project we have, we can achieve a lot.”

It seemed a little farfetched that Juve were attempting to sign Gabriel after the season he had in north London, as it seemed odd to think that we would be willing to allow any first-team players leave unless we wanted them to go. We are building something special in north London, and the former Lille defender has been a big part of our progress in the last 12 months especially.

Juventus would have been a risky move regardless, despite their offer of Champions League football, and I can’t help but feel that we are a more attractive prospect currently than the Italian side.

  1. So the gaffer stick to the same formation we have been using since we played in the Camping area stadium preseason.

    The back three looks good and will only gets better playing together, Gabriel the most senior member of our back line, victim of transfer gossip was never going anywhere.

    1. Glad you said back 3 cause Ben White is hopeless.
      He was nowhere in defence when Saliba OG’d. If he wasn’t British he wouldn’t get a game for Manu. Saka no better, watch what happens when he loses ball or pretends to be covering opposition left back. Right side of Arsenal is poor without tomi. Magalhaes carried White last season and now has someone who can help with the load.

      1. Ben White in my opinion is not a bad defender, the transfer fee may have affected his performance some what.
        If Ben white plays in a Barcelona team he would like a world beater.

        The left side was left exposed at one point, the biggest draw back with Xhaka is that he has no pace.

        We need a next commanding midfielder like Partey, that will help with our defense

  2. I think Arsenal should get more players called Gabriel, and maybe some Emmanuel’s as well. They seem to work out well.

    1. Ben White is a good cover for Tomi. Meghales is out defence marshall. While we need a good cover for Saka and Partey. The team is gradually getting shape

  3. Great win by team.
    Saliba must improve his judgement when defending box. No risky ball.
    Hope Tomi is physically safe now..Youri would be a good substitute for Tomi.
    Crucial to recruit an international Cum experienced striker by end August.
