Jesus is on his way! Will the Brazilian forward, though, be able to save Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal?

Gabriel Jesus nearly made enough of an impression throughout his five and a half seasons with Manchester City to imply that he will contribute in some way to the Gunners’ big £50 million investment.

His admirers frequently claim that he would have succeeded if Pep Guardiola hadn’t been the type of coach who likes to switch up his players every week. A longer game would have resulted in more goals.

Jesus’ finishing prowess is still seriously questioned; his greatest Premier League season total is just 14 goals, and if he had done better, there would not have been a need to purchase Erling Haaland.

Jesus never developed into the 30-goal threat City intended him to be, and he never sufficiently established himself as Sergio Aguero’s replacement. Can we truly assume that he will do better at the Emirates?

Bukayo Saka, the team’s top scorer with 12 goals in all competitions, and outright center striker Eddie Nketiah, who only scored 10, combined for Arsenal’s lack of firepower, which eventually caused them to lose out on Champions League participation the previous season.

There was obviously a need to spend heavily on a new striker with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette gone, and Jesus is Arsenal’s pick.

The player’s agents have traveled to London to finalize the deal. This comes only days after Arsenal spent £34 million to get Fabio Vieira from Porto.

But there are still those pesky questions: Is it enough? Next season, Arteta will have to balance domestic obligations with the Europa League. So, he might still need a third attacking option in addition to Jesus and Nketiah.

That player has to also make it obvious to him whatever qualities Jesus cannot provide them with. A physical presence to hold the ball up, skill in the air, and the capacity to finish high crosses.

Without carefully considering Jesus and weighing his record against that of other potential strikers, Arsenal would not have spent £50 million for him. Naturally, Arteta knows exactly what Jesus can provide from his experience working with him in Manchester.

However, there are still a lot of questions about the 25-year-old and a sense that his potential has not yet been realized, which seems absurd for a player who has won four Premier League championships.
