Arsenal find themselves lacking in the attacking department. Their main number 9, Gabriel Jesus has been sidelined with a knee injury for around 3 months. Their amazing run of form sees them sitting top of the league, but that could drastically change once the season resumes.
Mikel Arteta is expected to dip into the January transfer market for attacking reinforcements to cover Jesus’ absence. Former Gunners star Emmanuel Petithas told Football Betting: “You could see with Pulisic like he was playing with revenge at the World Cup. He was so good for the USA and he deserves to play regularly at another club. I think he’s the exact kind of player that Arsenal need. Now that Gabriel Jesus is out I think he’d be a great option. Just like Hakim Ziyech, you can see his head is not with Chelsea right now and seeing them both miserable – they don’t deserve it.”
Petit added on the need to get bodies on board over the winter: “They need reinforcements in the transfer market. There was talk about Goncalo Ramos and although he scored a hat-trick against Switzerland, I think it’s too early. He didn’t have any impact against Morocco. No headers, no runs, no hold up.”
“[Wilfried] Zaha from Palace, [Allan] Saint-Maximin from Newcastle or Pulisic from Chelsea would be my three they should target. Pulisic will fit perfectly with what Arteta wants, he loves playing one-touch football with good movement and he lives in London so it will be an easy switch.”
Arsenal will be back to face West Ham on December 26th as they enter the busy December period.
