Injury expert delivers fascinating Gabriel Jesus claim at Arsenal

Injury expert delivers fascinating Gabriel Jesus claim at Arsenal

Gabriel Jesus of Arsenal and Brazil might return to action at the Emirates Stadium in approximately 10 weeks, according to injury expert Ben Dinnery.

The 25-year-old is anticipated to miss significant time for Mikel Arteta’s squad after suffering a knee injury at the World Cup.

Fans of Arsenal were anxious when Jesus was substituted during Brazil’s group stage loss to Cameroon earlier this month, with an ice pack strapped to his leg while on the bench.

And Gunners fans were dismayed when Mike McGrath of The Telegraph reported that the forward needs surgery after sustaining a suspected medial ligament injury in Qatar.

Dean Jones of GiveMeSport suggests that the Premier League leaders are seeking a “good value stop-gap” player to fill the absence of the £45 million summer purchase.

And according to Dinnery, Jesus’ injury would generally result in a three-month layoff, though he may return “around the ten- to twelve-week mark”  if recuperation goes well.

Dinnery told GiveMeSport, “I think we’ve got a ballpark figure of three months, that’s the line in the sand as it were. Is there a possibility that he could potentially return before that, maybe around that ten-to-12-week mark? Of course he could, all being well.”

Arsenal are currently five points ahead of second-place Manchester City and have a legitimate shot at winning the Premier League this season, so Arteta will be cursing his bad luck following Jesus’ projected absence.

According to Transfermarkt, the Brazilian-born star has scored five goals and given six assists in 14 Premier League games for the Gunners this season, suggesting that Arteta must now find a way to match his goal production.

Dharmesh Sheth, a reporter for Sky Sports, told GiveMeSport that Arsenal could look to the loan market in order to replace Jesus over the next several months, as opposed to making a significant transfer investment.

Ben Jacobs of CBS has been informed that there is a “very real likelihood” that previous Arsenal target Duan Vlahovic would depart Juventus in 2023, however it remains to be seen whether the Gunners will renew their pursuit of the Serbian international.

Therefore, sporting director Edu and Arteta have numerous alternatives for a replacement for their Brazilian talisman in January, but the striker’s top focus will be recuperating and regaining match fitness as quickly as possible.
