Gabriel Jesus at Arsenal

Gabriel Jesus joined Arsenal in the summer of 2022 from Manchester City for a fee of £45 million (€53m).

The Brazilian enjoyed an excellent first season at the Emirates in terms of his overall game.

His link-up play, movement and pressing was outstanding and a key reason why Arsenal went toe-to-toe with Man City for much of the 2022-23 season.

However, his goalscoring – just like at Man City – continued to be a problem and he scored just 11 goals in all competitions.

In his second season last term, Jesus’ all-round levels dropped and he also suffered from a number of injuries.

Eventually, Jesus lost his place in the starting XI, with Kai Havertz even preferred as the number 9 in an unnatural role.

Jesus finished the 2023-24 season with just four Premier League goals and eight in all competitions.

This has played a role in Arsenal being open to selling him this summer.
