Mikel Arteta has just revealed his admiration for £200,000-a-week Tottenham star

Mikel Arteta has just revealed his admiration for £200,000-a-week Tottenham star

While discussing Gabriel Jesus, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta expressed his admiration for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane on the club’s official website.

While discussing a traditional number 9, Arteta mentioned Tottenham striker Kane and Manchester City summer signing Erling Haaland.

In the summer transfer window, Arsenal signed Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City.

Jesus can play both down the middle and wide.

Arteta made the remarks after Arsenal defeated Everton in a pre-season friendly in Baltimore.

When asked if Arsenal need a traditional no. 9, Arteta said, as quoted on the club’s official website: “It depends, look at Harry Kane, look at Haaland.

“I think at the moment there are certain strikers that are available, they grow, they have their moments in European football.

“It depends on the qualities, another one with completely different qualities scores 45 goals every season. So it’s what is available and what the team needs.”

Mikel Arteta did not have to mention Harry Kane or Erling Haaland while discussing Jesus and the role of strikers, but the fact that he did shows that the Arsenal manager regards them highly and admires their qualities.

Kane is one of the best strikers in the world, and the £200,000-a-week (SalarySport) Tottenham star could become the Premier League’s all-time leading scorer.

So far in his Premier League career, the England international striker has 183 goals in 282 appearances.

Despite a slow start to last season, Kane finished with 17 goals and nine assists in the Premier League.
