Arsenal legend Santi Cazorla has said that the injury to Gabriel Jesus is bad news for the club. He has also said that the injury is likely going to force Mikel Arteta to change his tactics.

This injury news of their star striker is also likely to change their transfer plans for the January transfer window. However, it looks like the Gabriel Jesus injury has forced the club to entirely change their plans.

ARSENAL LEGEND SANTI CAZORLA REACTION TO THE GABRIEL JESUS INJURY NEWS

According to a report with Athletic, Arsenal legend Santi Cazorla has said that the injury to Gabriel Jesus is a big setback for the club. He has also said that injury is likely going to have an impact on their excellent form. The Gunners have confirmed in recent days that their star striker has undergone a knee surgery. Hence, the healing is likely to keep him out until the month of February. Therefore, the Brazilian will not play during the busy schedule of December and January.

Santi Cazorla further said, “Really, really bad news for the club, also for the national team as well.

“For Arsenal, he’s a very important player and the best signing in the summer. He scored a lot of goals and he works very hard for the other players. “We’ll see. We have a lot of very good players but Gabriel Jesus is very important and I hope he recovers well and comes back strong.”

Hence, plans will certainly change for Arsenal on the field and off the field.

THE GUNNERS ARE LIKELY GOING TO MAKE CHANGES IN THEIR TACTICS AND TRANSFER PLANS

According to reports, Mikel Arteta is likely going to test a number of tactics for the games before the opening of the January transfer window. One of the plans is to try to play Martin Odegaard as a false nine. While another plan is to trust the ability of their young striker Eddie Nketiah. The termination of on-loan striker Florian Balogun was also discussed. However, Mikel Arteta is likely not going to explore that option. He reportedly wants Florian Balogun to continue his development on loan with Reims.

They are also likely going to change their transfer plans for the January transfer window. A number of reports claim that Mikel Arteta might try to sign an experienced striker for the short-term. However, there are also reports suggesting that they will go ahead with their priority signing Mykhaylo Mudryk. This is because the Ukrainian can also play as a striker. Hence, Mikel Arteta is reportedly open to playing him as their main striker to tackle the injury situation of Gabriel Jesus.

Hence, Arsenal manager Arteta will have to make big decisions in the January transfer window. However, the majority of Gunners fans are demanding the club to prioritize the signing of Mykhaylo Mudryk. They will also hope that Gabriel Jesus recovers on time without any further setbacks on his knee injury.
