‘That player’: Jamie Carragher claims Arsenal have a ‘world class’ player in their ranks who can’t be replaced 

‘That player’: Jamie Carragher claims Arsenal have a ‘world class’ player in their ranks who can’t be replaced 

Jamie Carragher has written in his column for The Telegraph that Gabriel Jesus is currently Arsenal’s best player.

In the summer, the Gunners moved to sign Jesus. Since completing a deal valued around £45 million, his impact has been enormous. Arsenal are at the top of the Premier League standings, and the Brazilian is largely regarded as one of the primary catalysts for their turnaround in fortunes.

Carragher wrote for The Telegraph that Arsenal cannot overstate how much they will miss Jesus.

“From the moment Jesus made his debut at Crystal Palace, he was scoring and creating goals and the belief within Arsenal grew on and off the pitch, the supporters suddenly seeing a side they genuinely thought able to compete for the biggest prizes,” Carragher wrote.

“Jesus knitted Arteta’s tactical elements together, providing energy with his goal threat and enabling his midfield to thrillingly connect with his front line in a way that was impossible with the more static, and generally less consistent No9s he previously worked with. Arteta also told me how much of a leader Jesus is in the dressing room.

“Jesus has taken Arsenal to the next level. I have often argued that developing sides do not need four or five new faces to take them to the next level. Often it needs only one world-class player to take a club forward.Jesus is that player for Arsenal, so there is no point sugar-coating how much he will be missed.”
