That has led to Mikel Arteta revamping his squad this summer, with the £45million signing of striker Jesus from Manchester City this week the headline acquisition.

Arsenal have also added attacker Marquinhos, 19, and goalkeeper Matt Turner, 27, to their ranks.

And they splashed out £34m to Porto to bring 22-year-old playmaker Fabio Vieira to the Emirates three weeks ago.

But it is Jesus who has got Egyptian midfielder Elneny, who has also recently penned a new contract, all excited after he struck a brace on his Gunners debut last night in the friendly win over Nurnberg.

Elneny, 29, said afterwards: “I think we pushed really hard to be top four last season but unlucky we didn’t make it.

“But this season we go again, and we try to win the league, to try to do as much as we can to put this Arsenal football club to the place they deserve.”

And regarding 25-year-old Jesus, who won four titles at Man City, added: “Big player, experienced player and he won the league with City. He has so many experiences in this league and we’re happy to have him.

“He works really hard in training, and he shows how talented he is and how good he is and we’re glad we have him.

“They [Jesus] are experienced, and they won the league, and they know how to win the league and they’re going to talk to us and tell us about the experience of how they won the league.

“Of course, we’re going to learn from him, and this is really good for us.

“We have someone who won the league, and we have him in the team now and we have the experience and in training, we’re going to learn from him.

“Of course, we’re going to push hard to go as far as we can.”
