Gabriel Jesus, 25, has scored five or more goals in preseason since joining Arsenal from Manchester City for a fee of £45 million.
Midfielder Per Mertesacker said that the Brazilian has been a high-quality player in training and the Gunner's match, who is quick, smart, and not afraid to go for a 50-50 ball.
Speaking to the Gunners' media, he added that he and Eddie Nketiah could pose a threat to the opposition with the help of the Brazilian, who plays as a striker alongside him.
"He's a top-notch player who's swift and nimble. For him, a 50-50 ball is no big deal. At the top of our lineup, we now have two players who may cause serious problems for the other team. Already, he's scored in the friendly; let's hope he can keep it up "he stated.
