Arsenal have four-man shortlist to replace Gabriel Jesus that includes former Brighton striker

Arsenal have four-man shortlist to replace Gabriel Jesus that includes former Brighton striker

Arsenal are ready to strengthen in attack.

Arsenal are looking to bolster their attack and have drawn up a shortlist of strikers to replace Gabriel Jesus this summer.

Jesus joined Arsenal from Manchester City in 2022 but has failed to become the reliable goalscorer Mikel Arteta hoped for.

The Brazil international has battled persistent knee problems since moving to the Emirates Stadium and hasn't played since January.

He was on the bench for Saturday's 4-1 win over Newcastle United but didn't play a part in the thrashing, which moved the Gunners within two points of Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Jesus, who has scored four league goals all season, hopes to return soon, although Arsenal's medical staff will be cautious.

The 26-year-old's fitness record is why Arsenal hope to sign a new striker in the transfer window.

Per the Daily Mail, the four names on Arteta's shortlist are Ivan Toney, Victor Osimhen, Joshua Zirkzee and Viktor Gyokeres.

Toney has been on Arsenal's radar for some time. He returned to action earlier this year after serving an eight-month ban for breaching FA betting rules. He's scored four goals in seven games for Brentford.

Osimhen helped Napoli win the Serie A title last season and remains one of the world's highest-rated strikers. Despite Napoli's struggles, he's still managed to net eight goals in 14 Serie A appearances.

Elsewhere in Serie A, Bologna youngster Zirkzee is impressing fans and pundits alike. One on the books of Bayern Munich, he's starting to find his feet. His physical nature would likely see him thrive in England.

The final name on the list is Sporting CP's Gyokeres, who moved to Portugal from Championship outfit Coventry City in July. Sporting smashed their transfer record for the Sweden attacker, who was previously at Brighton & Hove Albion. Since then, he's netted 30 goals in 33 appearances.

As well as a striker, Arsenal may add a midfielder and winger to their squad.

They return to action against Sheffield United on Monday night.
