EPL: Granit Xhaka names very important player in Arsenal squad


Arsenal midfielder, Granit Xhaka has identified striker, Gabriel Jesus as a ‘very important’ player in the Gunners squad.

Xhaka said this while speaking on Jesus’ imminent return to the team.

Jesus, who joined Arsenal from Manchester City last summer, sustained a knee injury during the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The Brazilian international underwent surgery and has not made an appearance since then.

He has scored five goals and registered seven assists in 20 games for Arsenal across competitions.

Jesus is nearing a return to action and has resumed training with the squad.

“Because we lost Eddie as well, it is much more important to have Gabi [Gabriel Jesus] back, Leo as well is injured and he can play in this position.

“Step by step, I hope that Gabi will be 100% fit to help this team because we know that he can help us.

“With his attitude, with his personality, he’s very, very important for us,” Xhaka said (via Football.London).
