Jesus has enjoyed an incredible start to life at Arsenal and already appears to be an excellent long-term investment. He has scored three goals in two pre-season outings.
He netted twice, including within two minutes of entering the pitch, as Arsenal came from behind to beat Nurnberg 5-3 a week ago. He then scored in a 2-0 victory over Premier League rivals Everton as the Gunners began their tour of America.
Arsenal have already spent big as Arteta plans to qualify for the Champions League for the first time since 2016. Jesus is part of a £90m outlay that also includes the arrivals of playmaker Fabio Vieira from Porto, goalkeeper Matt Turner from New England, and teen winger Marquinhos from Sao Paulo.
A deal for Jesus’ former City team-mate Oleksandr Zinchenko has reportedly been agreed. The versatile Ukraine star will have a medical ahead of a £32m switch.
