Arsenal are expected to be without Gabriel Jesus for next three months after he suffered an injury while with Brazil at the World Cup.

Sport explain Jesus’ absence has made the Gunners think about signing Barcelona’s Memphis Depay for the winter market.

His deal expires in 2023 and he’s said to be determined to finish the season at the Camp Nou. The La Liga side also don’t seem to be in favour of losing the forward in January.

Mikel Arteta has Eddie Nketiah as cover for the ex-Manchester City star, while Gabriel Martinelli can also operate up front in Jesus’ absence.

Meanwhile, Tutto Juve explain Arsenal are the latest team to join the race to sign Depay.

In need to find a replacement for Jesus, it’s said the Netherlands international is the one that ‘fits best’ since his profile is similar to the Brazilian, and he has ‘a lot of mobility’ and ‘great sense’ to score goals.

The Premier League club’s idea is to make a ‘low offer’ in January since the Dutchman’s deal expires next June.

With Sport stating Depay and Barca not in favour of parting ways in January, Arsenal may not have it easy to secure the attacker’s services.
