Mikel Arteta warned Gabriel Jesus will NOT be an out-and-out goalscorer by former Chelsea star Hasselbaink
FORMER Chelsea star Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is not convinced that Gabriel Jesus will be an out-and-out striker for Arsenal this season.
Jesus, 25, has had the perfect start to life in north London since he made the £45million move from Manchester City.
The Brazil international has already scored three and assisted three goals for the Gunners this season.
And he has played an integral role in helping Mikel Arteta’s side to maintain their 100 per-cent record in the league.
However, according to Hasselbaink, Jesus will not be an out-and-out goalscorer.
When speaking to Sky Sports, the ex-Chelsea man said: “He’s come in [and scored] three goals, made chances, made others around him play better.
“I’m still not convinced he will be 20 goals a season because if he was that then why did he not do that at Man City in a better team?
“I think he had enough opportunities [at Man City]. He is not somebody that scores goals out and out and out.
“He’s somebody that loves scoring goals and likes to link up, he’s been brilliant at it, very strong, holding the ball up.
“He’s got three goals in five matches – which is brilliant – but you expect him to score more goals. He’s a great signing.”
