The player in question is Gabriel Jesus, who joined Arsenal last summer, arriving from Manchester City for a fee of around £45million.
The Brazilian missed a good chunk of the 2022/23 campaign after he picked up an injury during the 2022 World Cup but he was still able to score 11 goals last season.
Jesus also picked up a similar issue in pre-season and missed the opening of the current campaign but has now returned to action and scored vs Manchester United last time out.
Now, ahead of facing Everton, Mikel Arteta has been full of praise for the South American:
“I think he brought a different energy, a different belief, a different threat, a different fear to opponents,” Arteta said when describing Jesus’ impact since signing.
“And he did it in a really natural way. He contributed hugely to the step that we had last season.
“If you look at the last six or seven months for Gabi, with the long-term injury he had and the amount of football that he missed, then he came back in pre-season and he started to get his rhythm again — and then he had another injury, another surgery. So we have to build him up.
“He is a tremendous player, a really important player for us. He changed our world last season. You could all see that. He is going to be a really important player for us.”
