Arsenal to look for options after Jesus’s injury. Arsenal will “look at the options,” according to Mikel Arteta, as they ponder replacingduring the January transfer window. The knee injury sustained by their top scorer while representing Brazil at the World Cup has shocked Arsenal. Although a precise return date has not yet been announced, Jesus, who had surgery earlier this week in London, is anticipated to remain sidelined for up to three months.
When asked whether Jesus’ injury will have an impact on Arsenal’s January transfer plans following Arsenal’s 3-0 victory over Lyon in the Dubai Super Cup, Arteta responded: “What it affects is who we are as a team because he gives us so much. So what we can do after that, when we know the timeframe of his recovery and when we can have him back, we will look at the options and try to make the right decision.”
When asked if he was satisfied with his team’s strength, Arteta added: “I think my team is pretty strong. Unfortunately, we have injuries, but we will work to be as strong as we can. We have athletes, and there are many supporting players as well. Do we have the players who can provide us with the performances and reliability we need to maintain and advance from where we are?” On Tuesday, the Gunners face AC Milan in their second and final match in the Dubai Super Cup.
