Can Jesus score the goals Arsenal need?published at 09:58 1 July

There are question marks over whether Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus can step up and be the 20-goal-a-season striker Arsenal need to fire them up the Premier League table.
That's the view of former Tottenham and Republic of Ireland defender Stephen Kelly, who likened the Brazil forward to a man who has just left Emirates Stadium.
"If you look at the numbers, Jesus is actually very similar to Alexandre Lacazette," Kelly told BBC Radio 5 Live's Football Daily podcast. "And he's been playing in one of the most creative teams in the world.
"Can he go to Arsenal and score 20 goals this season? They have desperate need for someone, but I don't think those goals are guaranteed."
Telegraph journalist Luke Edwards was more bullish on Jesus' potential move.
"It's a really interesting one," he said. "A chance for him to prove that he can be that player.
"He's a proven goalscorer in the Premier League and now, for the first time, he gets the chance to be the main man as he's always played second fiddle.

Should Patino be given a chance in Arsenal's first team?published at 17:00 30 June

After a debut goal for Arsenal in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals against Sunderland last season, we asked you whether 18-year-old Charlie Patino now deserves a chance in the first team more regularly.
Here are some of your thoughts:
Andrew: I'd love to see Charlie Patino start to make his mark in the Europa League group stages and the Carabao Cup. This was how Saka, Emile Smith-Rowe, Nketiah and others forced their way into the senior team and the Premier League. He's the real deal.
Ashley: Personally yes I would like to see more of Charlie Patino in 2022-2023 but for his own improvement he would be better off going on loan to a Championship club.
Jonah: I think that Patino is exactly what Arsenal need. He is young with such great potential and he is a very talented player. He has been at the club since he was a kid and the fans clearly love him and want him to see playing time. Only a few seasons ago Saka was in a similar position to Patino and look at him now. Patino is definitely one to watch.
Ross: A good technical player, no doubt, but needs to get much stronger to be a success in that attacking midfield area. Probably best put out on loan to let him gather more experience (time on pitch with Arsenal will he very limited) and grow a year or so.

'It’s good to see Arsenal doing their business early'published at 09:38 28 June

Arsenal are showing a statement of intent by getting their summer transfers done early, according to Harry Symeou from the Chronicles of a Gooner podcast.
Mikel Arteta has already added Marquinhos, Fabio Vieira and Matt Turner to his squad.
The Gunners are close to completing a deal for Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus and Symeou told BBC Radio 5 Live's Football Daily: "It looks like we may well get an announcement later on this week which is really encouraging.
"It’s good to see Arsenal for once going out and doing their business as early as possible. In recent seasons we have been hindered by the fact we have had to move players on first.
"Arsenal did that in January this time and a lot of people were critical of them for that and how short it left them, but ultimately it has paved the way for what looks like is going to be a really productive summer.
"Jesus is going to be a great fit. We need a centre forward. I think when you look at where Arsenal are today and where they want to get to, this was as good an option as what was available. You have to give them immense praise for getting it over the line."
On whether Jesus can be the missing link in the Gunners' attack, he said: "You’d like to think so.
"If you take it back to Lacazette, I think he got four goals in the Premier League last season which just isn’t good enough if you’ve got Champions League aspirations.
"This sounds crazy but Gabriel Jesus isn’t coming to Arsenal to score 25 goals in the Premier League. That’s not what Arsenal are looking for. They are looking for someone to get into double figures but to continue bringing the best out of the attack as a unit. The Sakas, the Smith Rowes, the Martinellis, the Odegaards who all seem to create this really effective ecosystem with Lacazette up top for large parts of last season.
"Had Lacazette got 10 or 15 goals, Arsenal would have been a completely different ball game. He’s coming in because of all the other factors as much as he is coming in to add to the goal tally."
