£45m World Cup forward sends one-word social media that he’s very close to join Mikel Arteta men soon –
When will Gabriel Jesus be fit is a question on several Arsenal fans’ minds, as their talismanic striker has been so integral since his arrival.
The £45 million man (Eurosport) took to Twitter to post a one-word update about his injury situation.
Brazilian outlet sportv reported that the Brazilian international is set to be sidelined with a knee injury for 3 months, after he suffered a knock against Cameroon in the World Cup.
Moreover, Mikel Arteta confirmed that there is “no clear” timeframe when it comes to when Gabriel Jesus is expected to return to full fitness (via reporter Charles Watts).
This is a major worry for Arsenal, as the 25-year-old is one of, if not their protagonist already.
The former Man City forward’s ability to link the entire attack together singlehandedly is second to none.

Gabriel Jesus is clearly so much more than just a No.9, as his link-up play and technical ability is nothing short of sublime.
However, it seems as all eyes are on Eddie Nketiah to see whether he can deliver in the decorated goalscorer’s absence.
WHEN WILL GABRIEL JESUS BE FIT?
While the answer to when will Gabriel Jesus be fit remains unknown, Arsenal’s star striker did take to Twitter to post a positive injury update.
“Progressing”, he captioned his picture while on crutches taking a stroll.
ARSENAL NEED TO ADAPT WITHOUT JESUS
Look, there is no denying that losing Gabriel Jesus to injury is not catastrophic news for Arsenal.
However, the club find themselves in a unique position of being five points clear of Man City at the top of the Premier League table.
Mikel Arteta’s side are firmly in the title race and have shown the minerals to stay at the top.
Now comes the test, as is the case with most eventual title-winners who adapt when their best players are sidelined.
When will Gabriel Jesus be fit should virtually stop being a topic of conversation amongst Gooners, due to Arsenal adapting without their star man.
