Arsenal: ‘I know what I can bring to the team’

Arsenal forward Gabriel Jesus feels confident with his position at the club, despite persistent rumours linking the Gunners to other strikers.

Even though he has only scored once once in the Premier League this season, Jesus took his European goal total to four during the team’s 6-0 victory over Lens on Wednesday.

“I’m not the most experienced, but I think I have seen a lot of things in football,” said the Brazil striker.

“Sometimes it is like this, it happened when I was at Manchester City even with (Sergio) Aguero and me scoring. I was scoring a lot and people were linking everyone [to the club]. So here, I don’t care about this.

“I know my qualities and I know what I can bring to the team. I can score and I can also help with other things, like opening spaces. But the only people who can see it are those who watch the game and understand.

“I think it is not about ‘he doesn’t know how to score’. Sometimes I have to be more in the box and that is the one thing I am working on.

“Obviously I want to score every game, if it’s possible a hat-trick. But that’s not the reality. My main target is to keep fit because I know I can help everyone here. I’m sleeping better, I’m eating better.

“Arsenal is big. Arsenal can go and face strong teams. That is enough to believe.”
