Arsenal are reportedly going to receive compensation from FIFA because of the injury to Gabriel Jesus. Hence, this will also help increase the January transfer window budget.
Therefore, the Gunners can try to find a suitable striker to replace the Brazilian striker in the starting line-up. A number of reports have indicated that Gabriel Jesus is out for 3 months.
ARSENAL SET TO RECEIVE COMPENSATION DUE TO THE FIFA RULES
According to reports, Arsenal will receive monetary compensation from FIFA because of the injury to Gabriel Jesus. The report also confirms that they will receive compensation under the FIFA Club Protection Programme. This program ensures that the club receives compensation for the injured. However, it is only for the players that are injured on international duty. Although, the Gunners will not receive any compensation for the player in the first few weeks.
However, they will start getting the compensation for Gabriel Jesus in the month of January. Hence, it clearly indicates that Arsenal will receive some sort of compensation for their star forward. They can reportedly receive a maximum of 7.5 million dollars of compensation for their injured player for a period of a year. However, the Gunners will miss the talented Brazilian for the month of January and February. Hence, it looks like Edu Gaspar and Mikel Arteta are trying to search for players that fit the tactics and the budget.
EDU GASPAR AND MIKEL ARTETA SEARCHING HARD FOR THE SHORT-TERM REPLACEMENT OF GABRIEL JESUS
According to reports, Arsenal sporting director Edu Gaspar is working hard to secure a replacement for the short-term replacement of injured Gabriel Jesus. The report also confirms that are thinking of signing an experienced striker that can also play the role of a backup striker after the full recovery of the Brazilian striker. It also claims that the Gunners owners are ready to provide funds to sign a short-term replacement. However, Mikel Arteta is trying to get his own ideas.
The manager is thinking of signing Mykhaylo Mudryk in the January transfer window. However, instead of playing as a winger, Arteta is looking to turn him into a striker. Another idea is they just do not sign the new striker and they will play Gabriel Martinelli as the main striker. However, there is also a very easy idea. They can also trust the ability of Eddie Nketiah on the team. Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has also said it that all the teams will hope to provide goals for Nketiah.
Therefore, Arsenal fans will hope that the club can find a suitable solution to replace Gabriel Jesus in the team. They will also hope that he can be fit for some games. A number of reports have also claimed that Gabriel Jesus can play in February if his recovery does not show any after-effects of the injury.
