Arsenal star Gabriel Jesus gives an update on knee injuries and gives hints on return date when he returns to work on grass
ARSENAL star Gabriel Jesus has given an update on knee injuries with the forward working on grass.
The £45m striker has not played since beating Wolves 2-0 away in comfort last November.
Jesus then went to Qatar in hopes of helping Brazil win a sixth World Cup – but was forced to withdraw from the squad after injuring a media side ligament.
Brazil only reached the quarterfinals and was eliminated by Croatia.
Luckily for Jesus and Arsenal, Mikel Arteta’s men have not lost their place at the top of the Premier League.
Jesus watched as Eddie Nketiah led the line with the Gunners after 19 games with 50 points.
And in a boost for Arsenal, Jesus appears close to a return with the ex-Manchester City striker working on grass after eight weeks.
Jesus cheerfully wrote, “After 8 weeks.”
Arteta won’t push Jesus back, especially when Nketiah is on form.
The Spaniard told Sky Sports: “Hopefully we’ll have him back (for the last few months of the season).

“Obviously it was a serious injury, a little longer than we expected.
“He’ll try to do whatever it takes to make it shorter, but we’ll miss him for a while.”
