"He's Going To Make The Team Better" Arteta Hints At What Jesus' Replacement Will Bring To His Team

It goes without saying that replacing Gabriel Jesus is a top priority for the Emirates during the January transfer window. The Brazilian striker will be out for several months after suffering an injury while representing Brazil in the World Cup.

Arsenal are in a good position to compete for the Premier League title for the first time in a long time. Losing Jesus is a big blow to their goals this season, but they have a winter transfer window to make up for it. According to the Daily Cannon, Arteta has already described the striker he is looking for.

"Can we afford not getting the player that we want? That is my question. We can afford to get a striker for sure if we want one, but I don’t know if he plays in League Two, in League Five, in Spain, in Portugal, in Africa. We can get a striker, I can guarantee you that. But what we cannot afford to do is get a player here that is not for us," said Arteta.

"This is what we cannot afford, that is for sure. We don’t need a body; we need players that make the team better. I think personalities that have the mentality that we want to win. And we have to focus on that. We have to be very strict with what we have done and the policy we have had to make the team successfu."

Surprisingly, there is no clear favorite target at the moment. However, transfer links to Joao Felix, Marcus Thuram, and Cody Gakpo have been established.
