The Gunners striker has been out with a knee injury since after the World Cup.

Gabriel Jesus has revealed he could return to action for Arsenal by late February.

Following his £45m transfer from Manchester City, Jesus immediately became a crucial part of Arsenal’s attacking line this season.

However, the Brazil international suffered a knee injury during the World Cup that has kept him out of action for Arsenal. 

In Jesus’ absence, Eddie Nketiah has stepped up to secure his place as Arsenal’s starting striker. The Gunners have continued their incredible run of form, leading the Premier League table with 50 points.

Nevertheless, Jesus’ return will be a major boost for Arsenal, whose squad depth is still far from ideal.

In a video filmed with former UFC fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov, Jesus revealed how long he expects to stay on the sidelines.

“Maybe four or five weeks more, I come back,” the former Manchester City star said.

The five-week time frame will see Jesus return to team training at the end of February. By the time Arsenal host Bournemouth on March 4, they will most likely have Jesus back in their squad.

Based on the given timeline, Jesus will miss another six games for Arsenal, most notably two matches against his former club Manchester City. 

The Gunners first take on City in the FA Cup next Friday before meeting them in a crucial Premier League match on February 15.
