Finally, Arteta Remedies Arsenal's Major Setback With Deal For Star Made For Big Occasions


Last season, Arsenal's major flaw was their inability to outscore some of their opponents. This setback was attributed to Arteta's lack of a sharp goal-scoring striker; Aubameyang and Lacazette (two strikers Arteta should have relied on) failed to deliver. Arteta's goal heading into this summer was to sign a reliable striker and finally put an end to his struggles in front of goal. 


 

Arteta identified Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus as a potential solution to his striking problems. Rightfully, Gabriel will be a Gunner next season after Arsenal agreed to pay Manchester City £45 million to sign him. 

Gabriel's Arsenal move has undoubtedly lifted Gooners' spirits, and Kevin Campbell, an Arsenal legend, has praised the Brazilian's talent.

"(On Gabriel's signing) very excited," said Campbell, as cited by HITC. "I think Gabriel Jesus is a world-class player, although he wasn’t utilised enough as he could have been, but a good gauge is that when the big games came around, he played; Liverpool at home, Liverpool away, the Champions League, he played, he started and he usually assisted and scored." 


 

The 25-year-old scored eight goals and assisted on eight others in 28 Premier League appearances (7 as a substitute). Hopefully, Arteta will have one or two tricks up his sleeve to make Jesus a success at the Emirates. (HITC)
