During his time with the Premier League champions, the striker found the net 95 times in 236 appearances across all competitions before joining Mikel Arteta’s side.
The 25-year-old has hit the ground running in north London by scoring three goals and providing three assists in six Premier League games.
Should Arteta feel the need to add even more attacking depth to his squad, another attacking star who has been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium of late and who we feel would give the Gunners boss the opportunity to form a deadly attacking duo alongside Jesus is Antoine Griezmann.
In 300 appearances for Atletico Madrid, where he is currently on loan from Barcelona, the 31-year-old has scored 144 goals and delivered 57 assists.
Having played in numerous attacking positions throughout his career, this versatility could make it easier for Arteta to get him and Jesus into the same XI and utilise both of their attacking talents.
Lauded as a “remarkable” player and a “game changer” by France manager Didier Deschamps, Griezmann racked up the joint-second highest number of goal-creating actions (11) for Atletico in La Liga last season, while only three other players at the club made more key passes than him (26).
Comparing those figures to Arsenal’s squad in 2021/22, the Frenchman would rank third for the former metric and sixth for the latter at the Emirates.
This shows just how beneficial it could be for the Gunners to have a player like the £344k-per-week attacker around someone like Jesus to help the Brazilian to enjoy more goalscoring opportunities.
With all that in mind, if an opportunity to sign the France international arises in the January transfer window, Arteta and co should definitely explore the possibility and see if the player would be willing to test himself in the Premier League.
