As we know, there has not been an awful lot to shout about as an Arsenal fan in recent years.
Indeed, last season looked to be a year in which we might have been able to shout and jump for joy about, however we somehow managed to do what a number of us had hoped would not have been possible and miss out on UEFA Champions League football at the final hurdle when we had done all the hard work. Of course, if missing out were not bad enough, then being pipped by Tottenham Hotspur certainly made it even worse.
Nonetheless, this summer appears to be one in which Mikel Arteta and Edu are getting to work and making sure that a repeat performance does not happen, as we continue to appear to be rather active in the transfer window.
God knows that we needed to add some quality and depth to certain areas of the field, with the attack perhaps one key area that we could no longer ignore.
It seems that we could have potentially solved that issue as we expect Gabriel Jesus to make the switch from Manchester City to the Emirates Stadium, but could he also become a FIFA World Cup champion later in the winter?
According to the odds made available at Betway Sportsbook, it does appear to be a real possibility. Brazil has been made the favourites to win the competition that is being held in Qatar this winter, with the Selecao being priced as low as 5/1 in order to win.
While there will be a number of stars that the national team can call upon, it is likely that Jesus will be selected, and potentially provide a vital role in helping the likes of Neymar Jr and Vinicius Jr to end Europe’s dominance of the competition and return the biggest prize in football to the last South American country to win it; back in 2002 when the tournament was played across South Korea and Japan.
Of course, many of us will be hoping to see an instant impact from Jesus once he arrives and puts on our famous red shirt, but if he does what we have seen him capable of doing while he was playing for Man City, then there is every chance that he could head to Qatar as a very dangerous component of the Brazilian national team this winter, while simultaneously leaving Arsenal in a good position in the Premier League and perhaps even the UEFA Europa League.
