Arsenal Already Have Their Own Lionel Messi As Mikel Arteta Has The ‘Best Player In The World’
Arsenal have started the season like a house on fire.
Things will heat up when the Premier League returns, with the Gunners starting an action-packed October, in which they will play nine games – with a huge North London Derby against Tottenham on October 1.
It is a mouth-watering clash and one manager Mikel Arteta will be looking to his top players to make the difference. He will be waiting to see what happens on international duty, hoping none of his players pick up injuries.
One player who is resting up and taking part in training at London Colney, having been snubbed by Brazil for a call-up, is Gabriel Jesus.
In fairness too him, he should have been full of confidence since 2017, when Brazil legend Ronaldinho described him as having the potential to be the “Best players in the world”.
Signed from Manchester City for £45million, Jesus has grabbed seven goal contributions in as many games so far this season. City were happy to let the 25-year-old join Arsenal, partly due to them acquiring Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.
Based on the evidence so far, City selling Jesus to Arsenal may have made the Gunners serious title rivals to the reigning Premier League champions.
“A year after signing for Pep Guardiola’s side, the Brazilian received high praise off fellow countryman Ronaldinho.”Manchester City have a very special player with Gabriel Jesus,” Ronaldinho told Mirror Football in 2017.
“Maybe even, in the future, the best player in the world.
“At the moment it is Messi. I have always said I think one day it will be Neymar. But at 19, in the future, it can be Gabriel. He has all the abilities to make that happen. Ronaldo, Kaka, myself and, more recently, Neymar were playing at the highest level at a young age. Gabriel is in that category.”
If he is to become the best player in the world, Jesus will need to continue his fine form for the Gunners, starting against Tottenham next weekend.
He will need to fire Arsenal to the Champions League next season to really showcase his talents to the world. Mikel Arteta’s £77m favour from Pep Guardiola highlights why Edu must explore third Arsenal deal.
Mikel Arteta has already revealed why Arsenal are looking to complete £17m transfer in January. Mikel Arteta has done something at Arsenal that Arsene Wenger and Unai Emery failed to do.
