"He Could Be what Jesus' Absence Needs" Arteta Gets A Simple Answer To Arsenal's Injury Setback

Arsenal received the worst news from the World Cup a few days ago: Gabriel Jesus was injured and will be out for months. Given how important the 25-year-old was to Arteta's attack, his departure is a setback to their PL title hopes. Although Jesus struggled with consistency when it came to scoring goals, he was more than that for Arsenal's attack.

Jesus brought some balance to the Arsenal attack. His technical ability allowed him to create chances and assist teammates; Arsenal's attack was far superior with him on the field. With this injury ruling him out of action, there is speculation that Arsenal may look to sign a backup in the January transfer window.

So who do they sign? Kevin Campbell believes Arsenal can't go wrong with a move for Ivan Toney. The Arsenal legend admits, "Someone just put in there (chatbox), Ivan Toney. If you could make that happen, that would be a very good sign because somebody could hold it up, and that has been our problem."

There's no denying Toney is a perfect fit for Arsenal; before the World Cup, he had 10 league goals and two assists. We'll have to wait and see if Arsenal pursues him.
