Gabriel Jesus shares a positive update on his injury

Gabriel Jesus, who sustained a knee injury at the World Cup and underwent surgery, has started his recovery and won’t be available when the Gunners resume Premier League play.

The Arsenal striker provided an update on his recovery from knee surgery as rumors about whether or not the Gunners may sign a replacement striker for him intensify.

The Brazilian was injured while serving on international duty at the World Cup, and it was reported earlier this month that he would be out of commission until at least February.

The 25-year-old has continued to share updates on his recovery since arriving in England and starting his road toward regaining his previous level of fitness.

Gabriel Jesus recently posted on social media that he had knee surgery and is now recovering.

The 25-year-old Brazilian has flourished since joining the Emirates in a £45 million deal from Manchester City in the summer.

Before the midseason break, he had contributed five goals and six assists. Jesus, though, is now expected to spend a significant amount of time on the sidelines after suffering an injury at the World Cup.

Arsenal is presently in first place in the Premier League, and there are concerns among supporters that the club’s title hopes may be jeopardized if the star striker is absent.

Following surgery, Jesus is anticipated to miss up to three months of action, leaving Mikel Arteta with few attacking alternatives heading into the second half of the Premier League season.

Jesus has used Twitter to keep fans updated on his progress as rumors about Arsenal adding players in January intensify.

Jesus posted a picture of himself using crutches and a knee brace and wrote the word “progressing” as a caption.

Gunners supporters, who are anxious for their No. 9 to return as soon as possible, have flooded the image with support.

Eddie Nketiah will have the chance to maintain Arsenal’s remote title hopes in Jesus’ absence. With just one league loss so far this season, the Gunners entered the World Cup ahead of Manchester City by five points.

The Gunners academy graduate performed admirably in the season’s closing few months to secure a new deal, but it’s unclear whether Nketiah will be enough to keep Arsenal in the title race on his own.

Arteta has already hinted that players like Emile Smith-Rowe and Gabriel Martinelli, who will soon be able to resume playing, are also capable of filling in at No. 9 and other positions.

However, the Spaniard did appear to give the strongest indication yet that Arsenal is prepared to spend big money on a different striker after he acknowledged that the team needs to strengthen in each and every transfer window, if at all possible.

“We will be engaged in the market at all times and evaluate our best chances. Being active means that we will constantly be searching for ways to make the team stronger.”
