“From What I’m Hearing” – Fabrizio Romano Shares Important Arsenal Update Today

This season, Gabriel Jesus hasn’t been performing at his peak for Arsenal, and ongoing rumors suggest he may soon depart from the club.

Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus has endured his toughest season yet in English football since his transfer to Manchester City in 2017. Despite speculation about his future at the Emirates, journalist Fabrizio Romano reveals that discussions about his next season’s destination have not yet held.

During his time at the Etihad Stadium, Jesus served admirably as a stand-in for Sergio Aguero and as the club’s primary cup competition striker, alongside his role as a substitute in the Premier League.

Departing Pep Guardiola’s side in 2022, he left with an impressive record of 95 goals in 236 games, despite most of his appearances coming off the bench in the top-flight.

Upon his move to Arsenal, expectations were high for Jesus to excel. However, he fell short with only 11 goals in 33 matches across all competitions, trailing behind Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, and Gabriel Martinelli in the scoring charts.

Despite fans’ willingness to give him another chance, Jesus failed to deliver this season. With just four goals in 25 Premier League appearances, he finds himself ranked eighth in the club’s scoring charts, tied with Ben White and Gabriel. This dip in form has led to speculation about his departure from the Emirates, though Romano claims that no discussions have been initiated.

Fabrizio Romano Says Arsenal “Have Not Made Jesus Decision”

Gabriel Jesus’ career trajectory remains uncertain, but one thing that’s clear is the need for improvement. As seen in his celebration after scoring for Arsenal against Manchester United, there’s potential.

In his Daily Briefing, Romano affirmed that Arsenal hasn’t finalised any decision regarding Jesus’s future. However, they’re considering adding a striker in the summer to bolster their attacking prowess and potentially edge ahead of title contenders. Romano stated:

“I’ve had a lot of questions from fans about Gabriel Jesus’ future at Arsenal after some rumours that he could be sold for the right price this summer. Mikel Arteta, however, was quite clear when he spoke about this in his press conference – he said that Arsenal have absolutely not made any decision to sell Jesus.

“From what I’m hearing, Arsenal have not made any communication to the player or to his agents about the intention to sell him in the summer transfer window, but this is not changing Arsenal’s strategy in terms of strikers.

“Arsenal want to bring in a new striker in the summer, and I’ve previously told you about their appreciation of players like Viktor Gyokeres and Benjamin Sesko. We also have to remember that they like Alexander Isak at Newcastle, though that would be a complicated one.”

Players such as Gyokeres, Sesko, Victor Osimhen, and Dusan Vlahovic have all been rumored to be potential recruits for the Gunners, but no solid deals have materialized thus far.

Arsenal’s search for a poacher has been a pressing issue throughout the season.

Throughout the campaign, Arsenal’s quest for a prolific goalscorer has been evident. Kai Havertz has shouldered much of the goal-scoring burden, demonstrating his effectiveness in recent matches.

Unfortunately, Jesus has struggled with both fitness and consistency, failing to find the back of the net in the league since late January. Despite this, his teammates’ contributions have helped maintain Arsenal’s position in the title race.

A striker with a knack for scoring goals could have significantly influenced Arsenal’s results in matches where they dropped points. Draws against Fulham and Tottenham, as well as losses to West Ham, Aston Villa, and Fulham again, could have swung the title race in Arsenal’s favor with the presence of a prolific striker.
