Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has a dream £27m solution to the latest Gabriel Jesus injury blow in Leandro Trossard.
Jesus missed Arsenal's Emirates Cup clash against Monaco with a knee injury, and Arteta will be hoping that the problem is not serious. However, if it is, the Spaniard already has a potential replacement in mind.
Trossard was signed from Brighton in January for £27m, and he has since shown that he is a versatile player who can play in a number of positions. He has started out competing for a spot with Gabriel Martinelli on the left-hand side, but he has also moved centrally both at the tip of attack and in midfield.
The 28-year-old Belgium international is extremely creative and has a good eye for goal, so he would be a natural fit for the false nine role that Arteta often uses. If Jesus is out for a long period of time, Trossard could be the man to step up and fill the void.
Of course, it is still too early to say how serious Jesus' injury is, but Arteta will be relieved to know that he has a player like Trossard in his squad who can provide cover.
