If Arsenal weren’t going to look at potential attacking reinforcements in the January transfer window, they may well do now.
An injury to Gabriel Jesus has turned the upcoming window on its head and could play a pivotal role in the Premier League title race.
The Gunners forward was confirmed to miss the rest of Brazil’s World Cup campaign after being forced off with a knee injury in the 1-0 defeat to Cameroon. Jesus has played a key role in helping Arsenal to their best Premier League start this season with eight goals.
Originally, football.london reported that the striker would only be sidelined for three or four weeks and would only miss the Gunners’ Boxing Day clash against West Ham. However, reports in Brazil this morning have suggested the injury is worse than first feared and he could be out until at least March.
